SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for lots of things depending on the type of website 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 website hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
When you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't include this feature as standard, you may add it with a few mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a number of Help articles where you could find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is included as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you may add it from the hosting Control Panel if required - even just for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the function with one mouse click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you will find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you can easily input the password which you want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you could also change it as often as you need. A complete list of the commands which can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and several instances. An extra function after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this type of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server solutions that we offer include SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you need to activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
