SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and perform various tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is running a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access is offered with all Linux cloud website hosting plans we offer. With some of them, it's offered as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can add with several mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access through the section related to it where you will also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to choose the password which you shall use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same spot. All commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the plan that you have chosen comes with this feature by default, you just have to activate the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands that you can carry out alongside a number of examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely via any FTP application which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer include SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you have to enable. Once your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
