One of the common reasons for inability to log in via SSH is that of too many failed login attempts. This generally clears itself after a period of time as long as continued failed attempts are not made.

If this is likely the cause, submitting a support ticket will allow us to remove the block manually.

In order to prevent such blocks in the future, simply reset your SSH password from the Control Panel before failing more than 3 times consecutively. Hope that helps!
