03 Aug cPanel tutorial: connect with server via SSH with “PuTTY”
Gary69 , Australia – Terrible Keep Away – I hold a reseller account and for a year now have had nothing but trouble, I click on CPanel and get redirected to the “adddons” page, I try to access my account directly through CPanel and get rejected I ask for tech help and get no help whatsoever, its been 3 months since the last complaint I started about his and I only get replies like “there are no problems” “its your computer that has problems” yet when I explain to them that I get the same issues no matter what computer I use they keep blaming my end instead of looking at there end. Tech help is useless. NEVER use this host. Nothing but problem after problem.
