SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things based on the type of Internet 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 server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer 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 Website Hosting
If you have a website hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not offer this feature as standard, you can add it with a few clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you would want to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you could find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus 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 through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
