SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a variety of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you can get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature by default, you can easily add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles in which you could find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they're used. Furthermore, 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 example.
