SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a number of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access could be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud web hosting that you've picked comes with this feature as standard. If not, you may include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You'll discover all the details which you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we have listed the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password could be modified from the same section anytime with a few mouse clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH no matter which plan you select when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided as standard, and with others, it may be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the necessary login information inside the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may pick the password you'll use and if you would like, you may change it regularly with a few clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands you can use in advance, as we've listed all of them along with examples of how they are used so as to execute a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions which we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you must activate. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do through SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
