SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server permits 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 such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is working with 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 though many providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

If not, you can add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You'll discover all the details that you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles in which we've listed all the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the very same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you will 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 will go through an encrypted connection.
