SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and conduct various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a number of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the web server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
In case you have a hosting account with us and you'd like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you could get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not offer this feature as standard, you can add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared several Help articles in which you may find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the package you have chosen incorporates this function by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and video tutorials about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can carry out together with several examples to give you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely via any FTP app which supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server plans that we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you must enable. Once your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will 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 as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
