Hello!

You can do it from your console:

If your computer OS is Linux, you can connect to your server from Linux Terminal. In Windows, you need a software like Putty.
For Linux & Mac users:

Open terminal and connect to your server:

ssh USER.NAME@YOUR.SERVER.IP
You should login as root for the best experience with. So, ssh root@YOUR.SERVER.IP

For Windows users:

Download Putty from here http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/download.html

Open Putty and connect to your server by entering server IP, Port (usually 22), Connection Type (usually SSH) in Putty default window, press Open, then enter your username (root recommended) and password.

PS.: Your hosting provider must allow SSH. Our NETCreator VPS Plans have SSH enabled, by default. VPS plans starts at only $14/mo and includes a free panel.
