SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many knowledgeable users, as the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things depending on the type of web 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 could be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
In case you have a website hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't provide this feature as standard, you can easily add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would like to use, considering that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared many Help articles where you can find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you can include it from the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even only for the current month. In any case, you can activate and de-activate the feature with one mouse click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you can enter the password that you would like to use, because it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you can also change it as much as you need. A complete list of the commands which can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a couple of instances. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
When you buy a new virtual private server from our company, it'll provide full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The function is included by default with all package deals, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up shortly after you purchase it and the instant you receive the Welcome email with the login info, you could connect using the server’s main IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
