I would suggest you figure out what the cost of replacing your system is after
someone sniffs the password and covers your website in porn. You can spend
too much on security, but not spending a small amount on an ssh client (and there
are windows ssh clients that are free) or using telnet because you picked a
bad hosting company suddenely look very very silly.

It'll take you a minimum of 12 hours probably longer. If the box is colocated
you'll probably have to have it shipped back to you for reinstall as well.
