Enable SSH

You can enable SSH in your Managed WordPress account. SSH is a secure method of connecting to your hosting account to upload files, move files, and execute commands with the Linux command line.

Note: SSH access is only available for Deluxe, Ultimate, Developer, and Pro plans for Managed WordPress. SSH access is not available for Managed WordPress Basic plans.

  1. Log in to your GoDaddy account.
  2. In your My Products page, next to Managed WordPress Websites, click Manage All.
  3. In the WordPress Sites list, click the three-dot icon for the site and select Settings.
  4. For Deluxe, Ultimate, or Developer plans: In the Settings section, click the SSH switch so it reads Enabled. You're done!

    For Pro plans (available U.S.A. and Canada only), in the Settings section, next to SFTP/SSH access click Manage and continue with the next step.

  5. Click the SFTP/SSH Access switch to turn it On.
  6. Enter a New Password, and then click Complete Setup. When we're done, note your Hostname, Username, and Password - you'll use these credentials to log in to other applications (like FileZilla or phpMyAdmin) for other tasks.
