SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you could install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can add it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even just for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the function with only one click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you could input the password which you want to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you could also change it as frequently as you want. A full list of the commands which can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you buy a new virtual private server from our company, it shall provide full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The function is provided as standard with all packages, so you will not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up immediately after you buy it and the moment you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you could connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can set up and run any application that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
