SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a variety of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access is available with all cloud website hosting plans which we provide. With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade which you can include with several clicks in your web hosting CP. You can get SSH access from the section related to it in which you shall also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can select the password that you will use and, if needed, you'll be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same location. All of the commands which can be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all accounts. If your plan does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it easily via the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the info that 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 can be updated anytime, if needed. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide you with. A detailed list of the commands which you can execute will offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you acquire a new VPS server from our company, it will provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The function comes by default with all package deals, so you will not have to enable or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up right after you buy it and the minute you get the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can install and run any application that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
