SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, for the reason that the information 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 variety of things depending on the type of hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the hosting server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients which permit you to use the protocol if your computer system is using a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting package deal which you’ve selected through the signup procedure features SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click within your Hepsia CP. If you've selected a different plan, the SSH access feature can be added via the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. All the info that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to change it at any time. All of the commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you are able to include it via the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with one click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you can easily enter the password that you'd like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you could also change it as much as you need. A complete list of the commands which can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.
