SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things with regards to the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the web server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you can install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

SSH access is provided with all Linux web hosting we offer. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade which you can add with several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access from the section related to it in which you shall also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you shall use and, if needed, you will be able to change it with several clicks from the same place. All the commands that may be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the plan which you have selected includes this function by default, you just need to enable the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and educational videos concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a whole list of the commands you can perform along with several examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely via any FTP app which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages we offer provide SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you have to enable. Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
