SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is used by many skilled users, since the information transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be employed for a variety of things based on the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically everything - you may install software or restart certain services like the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which allow you to employ the protocol if your personal computer is running a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port although many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

If you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't provide this feature by default, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles in which you may find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
