I don't know my current web hosting plan is enabling SSH or not. In the case I want to disable or enable SSH connection to my server. How can I do that?

If your hosting plan is shared, it’s probably doesn’t have SSH. That the rule of thumb. If it’s VPS it will, and so will dedicated.

No I have a VPS plan and I saw in my hosting control panel, SSH is being enabled but I don't know how to check if it is enabled or disabled from SSH without hosting control panel.

For any reasons, I would like to disable SSH for connecting to my server. Is that possible? if yes how can I enable it back when disabled?

Connect to port 2222 with your username, password and IP provided in your welcome email, via an SSH Client.

Open a SSH connection to port 22 of your server to check if it's live. You can disable SSH, but beware that if you use it to manage your server, you won't be able to do it anymore.

If you want to disable SSH due to security concerns, you can change it's default port from 22 to any other. That should do the trick.

I agree with you, if you want to disable SSH, it should be done in a hosting control panel with an UI and it also needs to have an option to enable it when disabled SSH, so you can use SSH when needed.
