Connecting to the server over SSH

To start with some theory. That’s what said about SSH protocol in Wikipedia:
SSH (Engl. Secure SHell is a secure shell“) is a network application protocol, allows you to perform remote operating system and tunneling of TCP connections (for example, for file transfer). Similar in functionality to Telnet and rlogin protocols, but unlike them, encrypts all traffic, including passwords, and passed on. SSH allows selection of various encryption algorithms. SSH servers and SSH clients are available for most operating systems.
SSH allows you to securely transmit unencrypted environment virtually any other network protocol. In this way, not only can remotely operate the computer via shell, but pass over an encrypted channel to the audio or video (e.g., webcams). SSH can also use data compression to encryption that is convenient, for example, for a remote client running the X Window System.
Most hosting providers for certain payment provide clients access to their home directory via SSH. This can be useful for both command-line and remote start applications (including graphical applications).
Siteko hosting is no exception in this regard and provides access via SSH on master and Expert fees, as well as on all VPS.
To connect to the server command line SSH we will enjoy free and free PuTTY for various remote access protocols, such as SSH, Telnet, rlogin. Allows you to connect and control a remote server. In the PuTTY is only the client side connectionside display, while the work is being done on the other side.
You can download in the downloads section of the program:
Download and install the program to your computer.
Running the program, we will see a window PuTTY Configuration and in the field Host Name (or IP address) in the enter the IP address of the server.
The IP address of the server you can learn from the starting letter received at registration services Siteko.

Be careful when typingcheck the keyboard layout and Caps Lock isn’t on, the password is case sensitive.
If all typed correctly you will safely on the server and you can control it with the Linux commands by typing them in a command prompt. Paste the previously copied to the Clipboard commands and even passwords can be just by clicking the right mouse button.
