SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for lots 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 in case the web server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you may install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is working with a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting which you have picked comes with this function by default. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will find all the information and facts which you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as detailed Help articles where we have listed all the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section at any time with several mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
