Connect to a cloud server

Use Secure Shell (SSH) to log in to your Linux server. For connection instructions, see the appropriate article for your desktop operating system:
Use Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) to log in to your Windows server. For connection instructions, see the appropriate article for your desktop operating system:
If you cannot connect to your cloud server remotely using SSH or RDP, you can access your server using the console in the Cloud Control Panel.
