SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for lots of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows for it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your PC is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
When you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you'd like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't provide this feature as standard, you can add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles in which you could find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is offered by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you will be able to add it via the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. In either case, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with only one click from the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you can easily enter the password that you would like to use, because it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you can also change it as frequently as you require. A full list of the commands that can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a couple of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this type of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you obtain a new VPS server from us, it shall provide full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The function is included by default with all plans, so you shall not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up immediately after you buy it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you may connect using the server’s main IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you may set up and run any application which can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
