How to Enable configuration of SSH on VPS via WHM

As we all are aware of the fact that the Internet is one of the most popular and quick responsive surveyor but we cannot deny the opinion that it is an extremely vulnerable place where major attack, proxy, and spamming take place without the knowledge of the user. Malware and other types of malicious codes might seep into the server if proper security measures are not taken. In order to ensure smooth and protected access to your VPS server, you must enable Secure Shell (SSH) through WHM. WHM is a powerful program that provides administrative access to the clients so that they can manage their account with ease. It saves time and money and streamlines tedious server management tasks.

SSH sets up a connection between two networked computers for secure data communication, remote shell services or command execution, and other secure network services via a secure channel. SSH must be enabled for smooth access to your VPS. But in case SSH is disabled by mistake, you need to fix it through WHM.
