SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a number of things depending on the type of web 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 web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS 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
SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared web hosting plan that you've picked includes this feature as standard. If not, you may add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You'll discover all the information and facts you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, alongside detailed Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the same section anytime with a couple of mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely using 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 provide you with the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the plan that you've picked incorporates this function by default, you just need to allow the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video lessons concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can carry out together with a number of examples to give you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely using any FTP app which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you must activate. The moment your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
