SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is used by many expert users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things depending on the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for pretty much anything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that 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 PC is running a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access is provided with all Linux cloud website hosting packages which we provide. With some of them, it's offered as standard, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can include with just a few clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password that you shall use and, if required, you shall be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same location. All commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to obtain SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan does not support this feature by default, you shall be able to include it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the information 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 necessary. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer.

SSH Telnet in VPS
All our virtual private server packages include SSH access by default, so you shall not have to include any upgrades or enable anything - the moment 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 which you have picked throughout the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts come with 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 will be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and protected way.
