If you are on Windows and need to connect via SSH to your server, there is a very easy to use program called PuTTY.
Difficulty level: Super Easy
1. Open PuTTY. If you have not downloaded it yet, download it here.
2. In the window that pops up, type as ‘Host Name’ your server’s address.
3. Select from the radio buttons SSH.
