Learn SSH In 6 Minutes – Beginners Guide to SSH Tutorial

David Archer , UK www.sonsenfrancais.org – #Justhost and PipeDNS – The trickiest part of moving from one host to another is the transfer of domain from one registrar to another. It shouldn’t be necessary to change registrars – it is enough to point the DNS at your new host However, #Justhost registers with PipeDNS, and PipeDNS is – #Justhost. So you have to change Changing involves the cooperation of the old host, who has to request that your domain is unlocked and get an authorisation key for the move. I had problems with my second domain – #Justhost did not respond to my request. They had closed down my access to CPanel, and I could not raise a ticket in the usual way. They ignored my email The real registrar is eNom, who have a procedure for reporting ‘unresponsive resellers’. But at the end of the day it is eNom who can twist #Justhost’s arm. (admin – what about a review section on eNom ?)

In this tutorial, you’re going to learn all about SSH and how to use it as a web developer. Towards the end of the tutorial, we’ll look at some real examples of connecting to servers via SSH so keep watching to see how you can make use of SSH for your projects.

This beginners guide to SSH will take you through the basics of setting up a connection with SSH and also transferring files. You will also learn about the importance of SSH and how to create your own private key which can be used to authenticate you with the remote servers that you want to administer.

SSH can also be used to secure any network resource e.g. HTTP or FTP. We’ll take a look at some examples of this at the end of the video.

We’ll make some example connections to remote servers hosted by Digital Ocean in this tutorial and you will see how you can log in as a remote user and run commands on a server to help set it up for your web hosting needs.

In summary, SSH or more specifically connecting to remote servers with SSH, is an incredibly useful tool to help you administer the resources that host your web sites and apps. You can also use it to transfer your local web development project to a remote server once it is ready to be published.

    So if you type root@<ip-address> would the password be your router password?
    Root is the username.

    I have an issue, I signed up my digital ocean account with my github account and when i ran my ssh for the first time i used the password associated with the login to digital ocean and then ran some installations on my terminal. 

    I closed the terminal after that session, when i tried logging in the using the ssh -p 22 root@.  When it prompts the command for password. I input my digital ocean password but it wouldn’t recognize it . I will put in my github account password it wouldn’t let me login where as when i was loading up the ssh command at the beginning i used my digital ocean password… i am lost in what password is required when i run this on my terming ssh -p 22 root@IP address when i hit enter it prompts for password, what password is required there..

    Please I really wish i can get an answer, Thank you so much.

    Thank you for this video. There's a few terms that I didn't understand but this gives a good starting point.

    Did I understand correctly that on windows the comand prompt allows you to do SSH? Or do I need to download a separate app that is designed for SSH?
