SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and conduct various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a number of things with regards to the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for virtually anything - you could install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is using 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 although many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

If you have a shared web hosting account with our company and you want to manage your content remotely through SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not offer this feature as standard, you may add it with several mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles in which you can easily find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

When you buy a new virtual private server from our company, it'll provide full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to manage everything through an SSH console. The function is included as standard with all plans, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up immediately after you purchase it and the minute you get the Welcome email with the login details, you may connect via the server’s main IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
