SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be employed for a variety of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart certain services like 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 enable you to use the protocol if your computer is working with a different Operating System as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux cloud packages we provide. With some of them, it is featured as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade that you can add with a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you shall also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you shall use and, if needed, you shall be able to change it with several clicks from the same place. All commands that may be used with our shared plans are listed inside 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 preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package that you've selected comes with this feature by default, you just have to activate the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have various help articles and video lessons regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands that you can carry out together with various examples to offer you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely using any FTP app which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans that we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you need to activate. Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
