SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a number of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't offer this feature by default, you may add it with several clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can even select what password you would like to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles in which you can easily find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
