SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a number 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 when the hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you could install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running 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 although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
If you have a shared web hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't include this feature by default, you could add it with a few mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would like to use, given that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles in which you may find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, 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 by using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which plan you choose when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is offered as standard, while with others, it can be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll discover the required login info within the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could select the password you'll use and if you want to, you may change it constantly with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands that you may use beforehand, as we have listed all of them alongside examples of how they are used so as to perform a specific 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
If you obtain a new VPS server from us, it shall feature full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The function comes by default with all package deals, so you won't need to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up immediately after you buy it and the minute you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you could connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you can set up and run any application which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
