Part 2 - Access your VPS using PuTTY

Now we will learn how to connect to our VPS using PuTTY.
Before we start, we must know first, what is PuTTY, and how to get it.

PuTTY is an SSH and telnet client, developed originally by Simon Tatham for the Windows platform. PuTTY is open source software that is available with source code and is developed and supported by a group of volunteers.
There are many SSH Client out there like Bitvise, KiTTY, WinSCP and other, or you can googling it with keyword "ssh client for windows".

To get PuTTY, go to here dowload it, and install

Okay, lets start Connect to VPS using PuTTY.
First, we must login to to find IP Address of server, the port for connect, username and password for login.
I assume you know how to find SSH Feature in
If you confuse about picture above, go Part 1 - Manage server on

Click on SSH, you will see like this ( see pic below )

Number 1 : This is ip address of your VPS
Number 2 : This is port for connect to your VPS
Number 3 : Username = root
Password = (see your signup email, make sure you can access your email, if you can't access your email, click on root, in server setting section (see pic below)

this feature is for changing root password

After we got the IP, Port, Username and Password for login, now, launch PuTTY
Step 1 : Host Name (or IP address) = Fill your VPS IP address here
Step 2 : Port = Fill with your VPS Port (in is 2214), diffrent VPS host can use diffrent port
Step 3 : Saved Sessions = you can write anything here, eg: myserver or server.myvps or anything
after you write in Saved Sessions, click Save.
Step 4 : Click Open.

Nextime you want to access server again, you can skip Step 1 - Step 3, just click on the name you've create in saved session box, click twice for connect to VPS, or click Load and Open.

For first time only, you will see this image, dont worry, its normal.
Just click Yes, and you are ready to login to your VPS server, and fill login and password

Login as : root
type your password.
you can login with your password in signup email, or if you have change the password for root, you can use the new password.

when you typing your password, there will nothing happened, but truly it does, it just not visible, dont worry, its still normal.

if you see your monitor and get similar like picture above, it means you have succesfully connect to your VPS server.

Thats all, see you in next tutorial.

  1. When you use SSD VPS, you can use less amount of CPU which ensures better CPU performance. With SSDs, your file opening speed can be dramatically increased.
