Additional security for your WordPress website – thanks to SSH
This service sets us apart from the crowd of web hosts.
As an answer to the steadily increasing threat situation and the associated increased significance of data protection and IT security, you get even the smallest
hosting packages SSH access by default.
Other measures to increase security, especially when installing WordPress, are:
– the automatic assignment of an individual and complex, generic password unless you want to set your own personal password.
– the lump sum Deactivation of “visibility for search engines” for new WordPress installations. Which makes crawling for a “freshly set up” WordPress website much more difficult!
Whether under Windows or under Linux, SSH is one of the most important tools for administration today to establish a secure remote connection to a server. This serves e.g. This means, for example, that the server under Linux can be operated or maintained from a local computer. The SSH server identifies itself to the SSH client with a security certificate. There are different variants to choose from to connect the SSH client to the SSH server. This can be done in the classic way with a user name and a corresponding password. A combination of private and public SSH keys would also be possible.
With SSH under Windows, the domain and the SSH port must first be specified in the SSH client (we recommend PuTTY). The SSH port always has the identifier 22. Then the specific user data must be added. You can access these quickly via your webgo menu.
With a client such as PuTTY, the SSH access should not cause any problems, even for less experienced administrators.
Under Linux, the connection is established via the integrated terminal or SSH command. More extensive Linux knowledge is required for access via SSH command.
Of course, we are happy to provide you with advice and assistance in finding the right solution for your requirements.
