I didn't find an option to disable my linux server in my hosting control panel to test somethings, my linux server is just stopped when I don't renew service. I would like to know what is the best way to stop my Linux server from SSH?

The command should be as simple as: shutdown

It didn't work. Like its asking me to shutdown in an exact time.

Code:
[root@srv ~]# shutdown
shutdown: time expected
Try `shutdown --help' for more information.
From the VPS control panel.
You are right, I forgot that it has a feature to restart from my server control panel.

You can access via console or IPMI if SSH is down

You can also use the halt command in linux:

halt -p poweroff
halt -verbose which helps to troubleshoot the server

You could also use

halt ? to see other options.
