SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a number of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart particular services including 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 permit you to use the protocol if your computer is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
SSH access is offered with all Linux shared web hosting which we provide. With some of them, it is featured as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade you can add with a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to pick the password that you'll use and, if needed, you'll be able to change it with several clicks from the same spot. All commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you'll be able to add it with ease through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will find the details which you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also essential if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A thorough list of the commands which you can perform shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a number of instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server solutions which we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you need to activate. As soon as your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
