SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many skilled 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 used for a lot 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 in case the website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much anything - you could install software or restart particular services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients which enable you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different OS too. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared web hosting you have selected provides this feature as standard. If not, you may include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You'll discover all the information and facts which you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, along with detailed Help articles where we've listed the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the exact same section anytime with several mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, as all of our packages offer this function by default. You won't have to add or allow anything manually - the instant your web server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you can connect and start working on your sites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the machine. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical server, you will be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You could install any application you require and that will run on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases fast and easy.
