SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks via a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, as the information 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 number of things depending on the type of Internet 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. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for pretty much everything - you can install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your PC is running a different Operating System as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

SSH access is available with all web hosting plans we offer you. With some of them, it's included by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade which you can include with several mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can choose the password which you will use and, if required, you will be able to change it with several clicks from the same spot. All commands that may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH irrespective of which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is offered as standard, and with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the required login details within the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to pick the password you'll use and if you want to, you may change it on a regular basis with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use in advance, because we've listed them all alongside examples of how they are used in order to execute a specific task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you need to enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
