SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many expert users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you may install software or restart specific services such as 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 use the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely via SSH, you can easily obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't include this feature by default, you can add it with several mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would want to use, considering that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a number of Help articles in which you may find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to get SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you'll be able to add it effortlessly through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide. A thorough list of the commands you can execute will give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, since all our packages offer this feature by default. You will not have to add or enable anything manually - the minute your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your sites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the machine. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from the other accounts inside the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You may install any application which you need and that shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases easily and quickly.
