SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a number of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux shared hosting that we provide. With some of them, it is provided as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade you can include with a couple of clicks in your hosting CP. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you will also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you will use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with a few clicks from the same place. All commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your plan does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to add it effortlessly via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you will find the information 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 can be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also essential if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide you with. A thorough list of the commands you can execute shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you have to activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details which you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do through SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
