How do I SSH into my VPS? (OS X/Terminal)

If you are on a Mac, SSH-ing into your VPS is very simple. Simply launch "Terminal" by going to your Applications folder, then Utilities, and then double click the application named Terminal. 

From there you will be presented with a Terminal window. Type in:

ssh root@YOUR_IP_ADDRESS

and hit enter. If this is the first time connecting to your VPS, you will be asked whether or not you are sure you want to connect. Simply type "yes" and hit enter once more.

Then, you will be asked for your root password. Type that in, hit enter, and you now have access to your VPS.

If you are unsure about your root password, you may reset it from the VPS control panel

Feel free to open a ticket if you need any help accessing your VPS.
