- Go to your GoDaddy product page.
- Under Web Hosting, next to the Linux Hosting account you want to use, select Manage.
- In the account Dashboard, under Settings select Server.
- Next to SSH access, select Manage.
- Select the SSH access switch to turn it on. The switch turns green and your SSH credentials appear in the list. Use these credentials to log in to cPanel via SSH.
Note: Your cPanel password doubles as your SSH password. If you're not sure what your cPanel password is, you can change it right here. Be sure to write it down since it can't be viewed in your account dashboard.
- Now you can connect via a SSH client.
