Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the possibilities are limited since you'll not have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

If the cloud web hosting package that you’ve picked throughout the signup procedure features SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with only a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have selected a different package, the SSH access feature could be included via the Upgrades menu and it shall become available straightaway. All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to change it at any time. All the commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and handle them through SSH. If the package that you've picked incorporates this feature by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you can quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and video tutorials about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands which you can carry out along with a number of examples to give you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely via any FTP app that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you need to activate. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
