SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about 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 employed mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your PC is working with a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is offered by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you will be able to add it through the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. In either case, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with a single click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you will find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you could enter the password you want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you can also change it as frequently as you need. A full list of the commands which can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a number of instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you obtain a new VPS server from us, it shall feature full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The function comes by default with all package deals, so you will not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up soon after you order it and the instant you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you can connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application which can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
