SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for lots of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't include this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can even pick what password you would like to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared numerous Help articles where you could find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you select when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is included by default, and with others, it can be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the needed login information within the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can select the password that you'll use and if you would like, you may change it constantly with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use beforehand, as we've listed them all along with examples of how they are used in order to execute a particular task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages provide SSH access by default, so you won't need to include any upgrades or activate anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials which you've chosen throughout the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands that you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
