SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many experienced users, as the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for a variety of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you can install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your laptop or computer is running a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port though a lot of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you have a cloud 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 doesn't include this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would like to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you may find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from all of the other accounts within the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You can set up any app you require and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
