SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, since 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 a lot of things depending on the type of Internet 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 allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.

You may get SSH access through the section related to it where you will also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password which you'll use and, if needed, you will be able to change it with a couple of clicks from the same place. All the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you must activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details that you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
