SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for lots of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is made 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 Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting plan that you’ve picked throughout the signup procedure provides SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this feature with a mouse click in your Hepsia CP. If you have chosen a different package, the SSH access feature could be added through the Upgrades menu and it will become available right away. All the details that you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same spot and you will be able to change it whenever you want. All commands which are allowed are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you should use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
