SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things with regards to the type of 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. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you could add it via the hosting Control Panel if required - even just for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with one click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you will find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you could type in the password that you'd like to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you could also change it as often as you want. The full list of the commands which can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this type of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
If you get a new virtual private server from us, it'll come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The function comes by default with all packages, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up right after you purchase it and as soon as you get the Welcome email with the login information, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands that you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could install and run any app that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
