SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for lots of things based on the type of web 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 in case the hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually anything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

In either case, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with one mouse click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you may enter the password you want to use, because it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as much as you need. The full list of the commands which can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a number of instances. An extra function after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you purchase a new VPS server from our company, it'll feature full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The feature is provided as standard with all packages, so you will not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up immediately after you get it and the instant you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. As 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 with regards to the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application which can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
