SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which allow you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux shared web hosting packages which we offer you. With some of them, it is featured by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade you can include with just a few clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can choose the password that you shall use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with several clicks from the same location. All of the commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you will be able to add it with ease via the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the details that you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also essential if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. An extensive list of the commands which you can execute will offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You shall be able to use SSH to control your content irrespective of which Linux VPS web hosting packages you select when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans come with this feature as standard. You'll not need to add or activate anything manually - the moment your web server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you may connect and begin working on your websites or any software which you want to set up and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You could install any app which you need and which will work on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
