SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and conduct various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a number of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several 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 may be used for practically everything - you could install software or restart specific services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which enable you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with 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 although lots of providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux website hosting which we provide. With some of them, it's featured as standard, while with others it's an additional upgrade which you can include with several clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password that you'll use and, if necessary, you will be able to modify it with a few mouse clicks from the same spot. All of the commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to get SSH access to it with simply a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this function by default, you will be able to include it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you will discover the details that you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer you. A complete list of the commands that you can carry out shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all our packages include this function as standard. You will not have to include or activate anything manually - as soon as your web server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your web sites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You could set up any app which you need and that shall work on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases easily and quickly.
