Slow SSH login

Slow SSH logins are generally because your server/vps is attempting to do a rDNS lookup of your IP which it will log and this can often cause a delay.

You can disable this default feature very easily by a line to the file '/etc/ssh/sshd_config' as follows:

UseDNS no

Now simply restart SSHd and you're done!
