SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the website hosting you have selected comes with this function by default. If not, you could add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You will discover all the details you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, along with detailed Help articles in which we've listed each of the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with a few mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

You may pick the password you'll use and if you want to, you may change it regularly with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use in advance, since we have listed all of them alongside examples of how they are used to accomplish a particular task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
