SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a number of things based 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 in case the server permits it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about everything - you may install software or restart specific services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many service providers change it for security reasons.

If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will discover all the info that you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, alongside in depth Help articles in which we've listed the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section anytime with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the plan you have picked incorporates this function by default, you just have to activate the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have various help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands that you can perform along with a number of examples to give you a better idea of what you can do.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, as all of our plans include this feature as standard. You'll not have to include or allow anything by hand - the minute your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you can connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the web server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You can install any app you need and which shall work on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
