SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, due to the fact that the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a variety of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you may install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which enable you to use 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 even though lots of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
When you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely via SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not provide this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles where you could find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions come with SSH access by default, so you will not have to include any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials that you've selected during the signup process. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands which you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you are able to work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and safe way.
