SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a number of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access could be permitted with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting package which you have selected offers this feature by default. If not, you may add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You'll find all the information and facts that 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 comprehensive Help articles where we've listed all of the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the exact same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
