SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

When you have a shared website hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't include this feature as standard, you can add it with several mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can even select what password you would like to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a number of Help articles where you can find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package that you've selected comes with this feature by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can carry out alongside various examples to offer you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely using any FTP application that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages we offer provide SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you need to enable. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
