SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and execute various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, because the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for lots 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 in case the hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is established 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 Shared Web Hosting

When you have a shared web hosting account with us and you'd like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not include this feature as standard, you may add it with a few clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would want to use, considering that it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared many Help articles where you may find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package deal that you've selected comes with this feature by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous 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 execute alongside various examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely using any FTP app which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server plans feature SSH access as standard, so you shall not need to include any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login information, you shall be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials that you've picked through the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands that you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage pretty much everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and risk-free way.
