SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a variety of things based on the type of Internet 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 hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
If the website hosting plan which you’ve selected throughout the signup procedure provides SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this feature with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have chosen a different package, the SSH access function may be included via the Upgrades menu and it will become available at once. All the information you need to connect shall be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All the commands which are permitted are listed within the Help articles that we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them using SSH. If the package that you have selected comes with this function by default, you just have to enable the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands you can perform alongside numerous examples to provide you with a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely through any FTP app which supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server solutions which we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you should activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
