SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a server and carry out various tasks through a command line. The protocol is employed by many experienced users, as the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a 3rd party. SSH access could be used for lots of things depending on the type of 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 hosting server allows it. In case you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for pretty much everything - you could install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is used typically with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with a different OS as well. The connection is established on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although lots of service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't offer this feature as standard, you can easily add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles where you may find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you may install and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
