SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for lots of things based 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 when the server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared website hosting you have picked provides this feature as standard. If not, you may add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You will find all the information and facts that you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, alongside in depth Help articles where we have listed all of the commands which you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with several mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts. If your package does not support this function by default, you'll be able to add it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the info you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also required if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide you with. An extensive list of the commands which you can carry out will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server solutions which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you should activate. Once your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do using SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
