SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, since the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be employed for a lot of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows for it. If 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 primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different OS as well. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port though many service providers change it for security reasons.

If you've selected a different plan, the SSH access function could be added via the Upgrades menu and it shall become available at once. All the details which you need connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same spot and you shall be able to modify it whenever you want. All the commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you will be able to add it easily using the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you'll find the details that you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated anytime, if required. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide. An extensive list of the commands which you can perform shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which VPS web hosting plans you choose when you sign up, as all our plans include this feature by default. You will not need to add or activate anything by hand - immediately after your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you may connect and begin working on your web sites or any software you want to install and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts inside the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any app you need and which will run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
