Do not change your VPS ssh port

I went into your server to check. Please do not change the default ssh password, the one you are using:

  • is impossible for us to guess
  • is not protected with our firewall with anti dictionary attack or login flood rules (the port 22 is by default protected (by dtc-xen-firewall)
  • it takes a long time for us to find it out
  • it's impossible to ssh in without a serious hole in ssh, but
  • it's possible to find your ssh hidden port by scanning all ports

In short, it wont make your VPS anymore secure and will slow down support, in fact in most case it will be LESS secured because not using our anti ssh-hammering firewall rule.
