Accessing Cloud Servers On Truehost Cloud

Truehost cloud is a leading cloud provider in the region and beyond. We provide reliable and affordable Linux and Windows servers , both VPS and Dedicated servers.

The first step is placing an order. For VPS, the server will be provisioned within 15 minutes. For dedicated servers, provisioning will take at most 48 hours.

Once the server is provisioned, we will send you login credentials to your server.

The next step will be connecting to your VPS.

Connecting to Linux VPS

To connect to your Linux VPS, no matter the operating system, you can use SSH.

SSH is a network protocol for data communication between two computers remotely.

SSH can be used to securely log in to your server and execute commands.

To connect via SSH, you will need an SSH client installed on your local machine. For Linux users and Mac OS X users, you can use OpenSSH client. For Windows users, you can use softwares like Putty or Smartty to connect to your server.

Connecting from a Linux or MacOS X

To connect to your server via SSH, you need to fire up your terminal and issue the following command

ssh root@ -9 1234

Remember to replace the IP address with the correct one for your server and with the listening port of your server’s SSH daemon.

If you are accessing the server for the first time, you will be prompted to authenticate yourself so that you can connect to your server. If that happens, type ‘yes’ and press enter.

After typing the correct root password you will be connected to your server via SSH.

Connecting from Windows

Once you have downloaded Putty, open the application and enter the following details

Hostname – Enter the IP address of your server

Port – The listening port of your server’s SSH daemon

Then press the ‘Open’ button.

You will be prompted to enter the user; put root. Then authenticate using the root password.

Then you will be connected to your server
