Something changed my SFTP/SSH user and password

I've been using the same user/password for months to upload documents to my site.


Out of the blue my user name and password seemed to change and now I can't even SSH anymore.


Even more bizzare I am seeing:


ssh's password:
Creating directory '/home/p9qbXXXX11639'.
Connection to closed

Super User III



Is this on Managed WordPress or another GoDaddy platform - I know specifically in managed wordpress you can toggle the SSH on and off / although SFTP should still work
