SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and execute different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you could install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your personal 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 although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
When you have a shared web hosting account with our company and you want to deal with your content remotely through SSH, you may get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not provide this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you would like to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles where you may find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you are able to add it through the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. Either way, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with a single mouse click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you can easily type the password you want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you can also change it as much as you need. A full list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a couple of examples. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans feature SSH access as standard, so you shall not need to add any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials that you have picked through the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands which you may run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage just about everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and safe way.
