Hello

I have very less experience with servers and this is my first time connecting to ssh via my mac terminal.

when I enter a command on terminal to connect to ssh, It shows me follwing error

ssh: connect to host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx port 22: Connection refused

I read some articles on internet but found no solution.

Thanks

Hello,

Your access level is listed as "Reseller Owner". I recommend contacting your hosting provider to verify if SSH access is enabled on your account.

Thank you.
