SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things depending 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 if the website hosting 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 particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using a different Operating System as well. 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 providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

SSH access could be allowed with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared website hosting that you've chosen provides this function as standard. If not, you could add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You will find all the info which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as comprehensive Help articles in which we've listed each of the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the exact same section at any time with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

All our virtual private server solutions provide SSH access by default, so you won't need to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials that you've picked throughout the signup process. Since the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands that you could run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage more or less everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you may work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and safe way.
