SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced 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 can be employed for a lot 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 if the hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different Operating System 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 lots of service providers change it for security reasons.

If not, you can add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You will discover all the information which you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, alongside detailed Help articles in which we have listed the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the very same section anytime with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
