SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, due to the fact that the info 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 lot of things based on the type of Internet 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 hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you can install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is using a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access could be permitted with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting package you have selected provides this function by default. If not, you can include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You will discover all the details which you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as thorough Help articles where we have listed the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the exact same section anytime with a few clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will find the required login info within the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may choose the password you'll use and if you would like, you could change it regularly with a couple of mouse clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands that you may use upfront, because we've listed them all alongside examples of how they are used so as to carry out a specific task.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you order a new virtual private server from our company, it will feature full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The feature is provided as standard with all plans, so you will not have to enable or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up right after you purchase it and the moment you receive the Welcome email with the login info, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
