SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
If you have a hosting account with our company and you would like to deal with your content remotely through SSH, you could get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't provide this feature by default, you can add it with a few clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside 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 may also select what password you want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you can easily find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Additionally, 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 example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and handle them using SSH. If the package which you have picked incorporates this function by default, you simply have to activate the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and instructional videos about the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a whole list of the commands that you can perform alongside a number of examples to provide you with a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely and securely through any FTP app that supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you get a new VPS server from us, it will provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The feature is included as standard with all packages, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up immediately after you get it and the minute you get the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect using the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you may set up and run any application that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
