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

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the hosting plan that you have chosen comes with this feature by default. If not, you may include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You will find all the info you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as thorough Help articles where we've listed each of the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the exact same section at any time with a couple of clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
