Logging into your server
The default SSH TCP port for Linux servers is 22. Root access is disabled by default so you first need to log in with the provided username and then
sudo to root.
Here's an example on how to log in to Ubuntu from a Mac or Linux.
$ ssh ubuntu@ip
$ sudo su
As a security measure, Maxihost will force you to change your server's password on the first login.
Windows servers are delivered with RDP and Administrator account enabled.
Logging in from Windows
Use the Remote Desktop Connection application.
Logging in from Linux
You will need to install a package to enable RDP sessions to servers. Remmina is a popular one, but there are many others available.
Logging in from Mac OS X
To make a remote desktop connection, you need additional software.
Commonly the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac is used, which can be found from the Mac App Store.
