SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things with regards to 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 when the server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different Operating System 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 lots of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

In any case, you could activate and de-activate the function with just one mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you get a new VPS server from our company, it shall offer full root access and you'll 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 shall not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up immediately after you order it and the minute you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you may connect via the server’s main IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you may install and run any application which can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
