Rsync support in shared hosting SSH accounts

If you want to use rsync, follow these steps:

  1. Enable SSH access by turning on the shell access option in the Web Hosting Settings section of the domain.

  2. When you are given SSH access, the system automatically creates the .ssh directory inside your account.

  3. Once the .ssh directory is created (the directory will be located at /.ssh), you need to create the ssh key by executing ssh-keygen from the command line.

  4. If you need to connect to a remote server that uses a non-standard SSH port, you need to add the following to your .ssh/config:

Host example.com
Port 22555

  1. Once this is done, you should be able to use rsync successfully. If there is something not working, please contact us by sending a support ticket.
