SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for lots of things based 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 in case the web server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your PC is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

If the shared hosting package deal which you’ve selected during the signup procedure provides SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. If you've chosen a different plan, the SSH access function could be added using the Upgrades menu and it'll become available immediately. All the information which you need connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to change it at any time. All the commands that are permitted are listed in the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you need to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to receive SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it without difficulty through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated at any time, if needed. These login credentials are also essential if you would like to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A thorough list of the commands that you can execute will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you could perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS web hosting plans you pick when you sign up, since all our plans provide this function by default. You won't need to include or allow anything manually - the minute your website hosting server is prepared and you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you want to set up and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical server, you will be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You can set up any application which you need and that will work on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
