SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many skilled users, due to the fact that the info 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 with regards to the type of Internet hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file in case the website hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for practically anything - you could install software or restart particular services including the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to use the protocol if your laptop or computer is working with a different OS as well. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though a number of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a shared website hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not come with this feature by default, you can easily add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also pick what password you would like to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared several Help articles in which you can find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
