SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks via a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, as 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 number of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with a different OS as well. The connection is established 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.

You can obtain SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the information which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you shall use and, if required, you will be able to change it with several clicks from the same location. All the commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article together 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.

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

If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages which we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you have to enable. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details which you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
