SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things with regards to 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 when the server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your PC is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many service providers change it for security reasons.

If your plan does not include this feature as standard, you may add it with several clicks via 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 can also pick what password you want to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you can easily find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you may type the password that you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you could also change it as often as you want. A complete list of the commands which can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few instances. An extra feature after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server packages which we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you need to enable. Once your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
