Change SSH Port

By default, Everywhere, The SSH port is 22. However, Linux allows you to change the SSH port on your Server. It makes a lot of sense to change the SSH port. If someone tries to brute-force the default SSH port, they will not find the SSH service running.

There are 65535 ports in a Linux system. You can keep any port as long as any other service does not currently use it. With a random SSH port, The login “attempts” on your Server will decrease a lot! And it also becomes very hard to find the SSH port.
