SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and execute various tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, due to the fact that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things based on the type of website 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 hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for practically anything - you can install software or restart certain services including the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section at any time with several mouse clicks.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you select when you sign up. With some packages, the function is included as standard, while with others, it can be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the necessary login details inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could choose the password you'll use and if you want, you can change it all the time with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands you can use beforehand, because we have listed them alongside examples of how they are used so as to execute a specific task. Once 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 Web Hosting

All our virtual private server plans provide SSH access by default, so you shall not have to include any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login info, you shall be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've chosen during the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you could run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage pretty much everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
