SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things based on the type of 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 website hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your PC is working with a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though lots of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
When you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you would like to deal with your content remotely through SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't provide this feature by default, you could add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can even choose what password you would want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you could find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is included as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you could include it via the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even only for the current month. In either case, you can activate and de-activate the function with a single click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you can easily type the password which you want to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you could also change it as frequently as you want. A complete list of the commands which can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a number of instances. An extra function after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages which we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you must activate. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
