SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a lot of things based 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 when the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you could install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
When you have a shared hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not offer this feature as standard, you can easily add it with a couple of mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a number of Help articles in which you can find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed 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
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the plan that you've selected comes with this feature by default, you just need to enable the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can carry out along with various examples to give you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely using any FTP application which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, since all of our packages provide this function as standard. You won't have to include or enable anything by hand - immediately after your website hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your websites or any software that you want to install and run on the hosting server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from the other accounts within the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You could set up any app that you need and that will work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases easily and quickly.
