SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your personal computer 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 though many providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not offer this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared several Help articles where you may find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Also, 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 example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH irrespective of which plan you choose when you sign up. With some packages, the function is provided by default, while with others, it may be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the needed login info inside the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could choose the password that you'll use and if you want, you could change it on a regular basis with a few clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands you can use upfront, since we've listed all of them along with examples of how they are used to perform a particular task. As soon as 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
You shall be able to use SSH to control your content no matter which VPS web hosting plans you pick when you sign up, because all our plans offer this feature as standard. You won't have to add or enable anything manually - the instant your web server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software which you want to install and run on the machine. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be separated from the other accounts on the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You can set up any app you require and that will work on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
