SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for lots of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you can include it via the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even just for the current month. In either case, you can activate and de-activate the feature with only one click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, 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 may input the password which you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you could also change it as much as you require. A complete list of the commands which can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and several examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this type of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans come with SSH access by default, so you shall not need to add any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login information, you will be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials which you've chosen during the signup process. Because the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands that you can run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and secure way.
