SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for lots of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your PC is working with a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
SSH access could be permitted with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared web hosting package that you've chosen includes this feature as standard. If not, you can add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You'll find all the info you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, as well as in depth Help articles where we've listed the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section at any time with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you could add it via the hosting CP if needed - even just for the current month. In any case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with just one mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you can easily enter the password that you'd like to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as often as you require. A complete list of the commands that can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few instances. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports such connections.
