SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for lots of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you want to manage your content remotely using SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not come with this feature as standard, you could add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can even pick what password you want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared several Help articles where you can easily find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
