Administration interface: list of SSH users

Using a terminal

Open your terminal and enter the following command:

$ ssh [user]@ssh-[account].alwaysdata.net

Replace [user] with your SSH user name and ssh-[account].alwaysdata.net with your SSH hostname.

Via the web

Useful when located after a firewall, our web interface lets you use the SSH protocol from your browser. To use it, specify https://ssh-[account].alwaysdata.net in the address bar of your web browser.

Be aware however that this solution is hardly reliable and slow and does not replace a client.

This interface is not compatible with VPS and dedicated hosting.

Tips

Fingerprints of our SSH servers are displayed in the Remote access > SSH menu of your administration interface.

An account’s SSH server might change from time to time. In this case, you have to update the known_hosts file. You can use the following command:

ssh-keygen -R [hostname]
