SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and conduct different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for lots of things based on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server permits it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart specific services like the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different Operating System as well. The connection is established 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.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared website hosting which you have selected comes with this feature by default. If not, you may include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will discover all the details which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles in which we have listed the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the same section anytime with a few clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans which we offer feature SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you must activate. Once your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
