SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different OS 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 a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

When you have a cloud hosting account with us and you want to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can obtain SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not offer this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. In 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 may also choose what password you would like to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared numerous Help articles where you can find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
