SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks via a command line. The protocol is preferred by many experienced users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access may be used for a variety of things based on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your PC is running a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

All the info you need to connect shall be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same location and you shall be able to modify it at any time. All the commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them through SSH.

If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, since all our plans include this function by default. You'll not need to include or activate anything by hand - the instant your server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login details, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your websites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the web server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application you need and that will run on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
