Create an SSH banner.

Adding a banner to your Dedicated Server is extremely easy to do. It is comprised of 2 steps.

1.) Edit your sshd_config file located at /etc/ssh/sshd_config and add the folowing line:

Banner /etc/banner

2.) Now you need to create this file. Using your favorite editor, just create the new file and put whatever you would like your users to see when they attempt to login to your Dedicated Server.

Here is an example:
