SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a number 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 in case the website hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ 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 hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

When you have a hosting account with our company and you'd like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you can obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't come with this feature by default, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would like to use, given that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared numerous Help articles where you can easily find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you could include it through the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. Either way, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with just one click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you may type the password you want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you could also change it as frequently as you require. The full list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and several examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS hosting plans you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans offer this feature as standard. You won't have to include or allow anything by hand - the moment your web server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login info, you could connect and begin working on your websites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the hosting server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from the other accounts on the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You may set up any application you need and that shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
