SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, since the data 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 variety of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux shared web hosting that we offer you. With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade which you can include with a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access from the section related to it where you will also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you shall use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with several clicks from the same spot. All commands which can be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you will be able to include it easily through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the details which you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also needed if you would like to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide. A comprehensive list of the commands that you can execute shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform in your account and each is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server offers we offer include SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you should activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
