How to Connect Hostgator.com SSH from Ubuntu’s Terminal

If you have a shared account in HostGator, it is possible for you to have a connection straight to your files and folders. By using SSH you can simply login from your Putty or Terminal without opening your maindomain:2082 and enter the username and password that wasting time.

Open your terminal and type following command.

ssh -p 2222 cpanelusr@ip.add.re.ss

for example:

ssh -p 2222 mybigdoll@172.122.63.89

Enter your password. Oh, I forgot to mention that you have to log on to your  hostgator billing panel and activate shell access to your account.

hostgator ssh

After you logged in hover scroll the page to the bottom and find View Hosting Packages. Then, click Enable Shell Access for the desired domain/account.
