SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things based on the type of website 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 web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud hosting that you've selected includes this function by default. If not, you may include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will discover all the details you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we've listed all 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 same section at any time with a few clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

You'll find the required login details in the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can select the password that you'll use and if you want, you can change it constantly with a few clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use beforehand, as we've listed them along with examples of how they are used to accomplish a specific task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
