SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a number 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 website hosting server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart specific 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 allow you to use the protocol if your PC is working with a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access may be enabled with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared package that you've picked comes with this feature by default. If not, you may add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will find all the info you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, alongside detailed Help articles in which we have listed each of the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the same section anytime with a couple of clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall find the required login info within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could select the password which you'll use and if you'd like, you could change it regularly with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you may use in advance, since we have listed them all alongside examples of how they are used in order to carry out a certain task.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server packages come with SSH access as standard, so you won't have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login info, you will be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials that you've selected throughout the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands that you may run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and secure way.
