SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a lot of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you can install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your personal computer is running 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 lots of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting service that you've selected provides this feature as standard. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You'll find all the details which you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax 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 will also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you are able to include it via the hosting Control Panel if needed - even only for the current month. In any case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with a single mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you may type in the password that you'd like to use, because it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you can also change it as often as you need. A full list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra feature after SSH access is enabled will 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 Servers
All our VPS server plans include SSH access as standard, so you won't need to add any upgrades or activate anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you will be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have selected throughout the signup procedure. Because the VPS accounts include 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'll be able to manage virtually everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and risk-free way.
