SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a web server and carry out different tasks using a command line. The protocol is popular with many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access can be employed for a lot of things based on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the hosting server permits it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you may 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 Operating Systems, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your computer system is running a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote 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
When you have a shared website hosting account with us and you'd like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you may get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not come with this feature as standard, you can add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you want to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a number of Help articles in which you may find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll discover the required login info within the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could pick the password which you'll use and if you'd like, you may change it regularly with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands you can use in advance, since we've listed them together with examples of how they are used so as to accomplish a particular task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server offers include SSH access by default, so you will not need to include any upgrades or activate anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen throughout the signup process. Since the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands that you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and protected way.
