SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a number of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart particular services such as 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 which permit you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System too. 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 Hosting

SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting you have selected provides this function as standard. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the info that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside detailed Help articles in which we have listed the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the exact same section anytime with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and handle them using SSH. If the package which you have chosen includes this function by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands that you can carry out along with several examples to offer you a better idea of what you could do.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, as all of our packages offer this function by default. You will not have to include or allow anything manually - immediately after your web server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you could connect and start working on your web sites or any software which 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 will be separated from all the other accounts on the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You could install any application you require and that shall work on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases easily and quickly.
