SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled 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 can be employed for lots of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Web Hosting
When you have a web hosting account with us and you would like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't come with this feature by default, you could add it with several mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles where you can find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
