SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can easily obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't offer this feature by default, you could add it with a few mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you want to use, considering that it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared several Help articles where you can easily find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you select when you sign up. With some plans, the function is provided as standard, while with others, it may be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the required login details in the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to select the password you'll use and if you'd like, you can change it regularly with a few clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use upfront, as we have listed them all together with examples of how they are used so as to perform a certain task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

If you order a new virtual private server from our company, it'll provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The feature is included by default with all package deals, so you shall not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up immediately after you buy it and as soon as you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
