SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a number of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

If not, you can add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway.

The SSH password may be changed from the same section anytime with a couple of clicks.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you may include it via the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. In any case, you could activate and de-activate the function with only one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you can easily enter the password that you would like to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you may also change it as much as you need. A complete list of the commands that can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a number of examples. An extra feature 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 Web Hosting

If you acquire a new virtual private server from our company, it'll offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The function is included as standard with all packages, so you will not have to activate or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up immediately after you order it and the minute you get the Welcome email with the login information, you can connect via the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could install and run any application which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
