SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, because the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for lots of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for practically everything - 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 Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different Operating System 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 although many providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access may be enabled with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud package which you have selected includes this function by default. If not, you can include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You will discover all the information and facts which you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside in depth Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section at any time with a couple of clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you may add it through the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with only one click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you can input the password that you'd like to use, as 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 much as you require. A complete list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few instances. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports such connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which Linux VPS web hosting packages you choose when you sign up, since all of our packages provide this function as standard. You won't have to add or allow anything by hand - the minute your server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you want to set up and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all the other accounts within the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application which you need and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases quickly and easily.
