SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you want to manage your content remotely through SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not come with this feature by default, you can add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can even pick what password you want to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared several Help articles in which you could find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and handle them through SSH. If the plan which you have picked incorporates this feature by default, you just need to allow the SSH access feature 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 in the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands which you can perform alongside numerous examples to provide you with a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely via any FTP app which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You will be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which VPS servers you select when you sign up, because all our plans offer this feature by default. You'll not have to add or enable anything manually - the minute your web server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you can connect and begin working on your websites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the machine. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be separated from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You can set up any application you need and which shall run on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
