SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, since the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed 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 in case the server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually everything - you could install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

If the shared hosting plan which you’ve picked through the signup process features SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this function with a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've chosen a different package, the SSH access feature can be included using the Upgrades menu and it shall become available straightaway. All the details that you need to connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to modify it whenever you want. All the commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles that we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you need to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can add it through the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. In either case, you can activate and de-activate the function with a single click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you can easily type the password which you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as much as you need. The full list of the commands which can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, because all our plans provide this function by default. You'll not need to include or allow anything by hand - the instant your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login info, you could connect and begin working on your websites or any software you want to install and run on the web server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from the other accounts inside the physical server, you will be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You may install any app you need and which will work on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
