SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many expert users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you can install software or restart particular 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 permit you to use the protocol if your PC is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access is featured with all Linux cloud website hosting services that we provide. With some of them, it's included by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade that you can include with a couple of clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you will also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to choose the password that you shall use and, if necessary, you shall be able to change it with several clicks from the same location. All commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to get SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your package does not support this function by default, you will be able to add it effortlessly using the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the information 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 could be updated anytime, if required. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer. A detailed list of the commands which you can carry out will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
You will be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which Linux virtual private servers you select when you sign up, as all our plans come with this function as standard. You will not have to include or enable anything manually - the moment your website hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you may connect and begin working on your web sites or any software that you want to install and run on the machine. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any app you need and that will run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
