SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to connect to a web server and execute different tasks using a command line. The protocol is preferred by many knowledgeable users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it cannot be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be used for a lot of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is used mostly with UNIX-like Systems, but there are clients that allow you to use the protocol if your PC is using a different Operating System too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many service providers change it for security reasons.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access may be permitted with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting which you have selected comes with this feature as standard. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will find all the details you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, along with thorough Help articles in which we have listed the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section anytime with a few mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts inside the physical server, you will be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You may set up any application you require and which will run on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
