You need to have an SSH account to use SSH on your Bravenet account.
It is recommended that, only advanced users, use SSH to manage any larger websites that you may choose to host with Bravenet. It provides greater ease-of-use and utility when dealing with the hundreds, or perhaps even thousands of files involved in more complicated websites.
Connecting to SSH with Putty

- Specify your username yourname-123456789.
- Specify your password.
- Specify your port: 22.
