SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH access can be permitted with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting package that you've selected comes with this function as standard. If not, you may include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will find all the details which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as comprehensive Help articles where we have listed the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section at any time with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
