Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

SSH access may be permitted with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared website hosting plan that you have chosen comes with this function by default. If not, you could add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You'll discover all the info which you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the exact same section anytime with several mouse clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the function is offered by default, while with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the necessary login information in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may select the password which you'll use and if you would like, you could change it constantly with a few clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use beforehand, because we've listed them all along with examples of how they are used so as to carry out a particular task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server offers that we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you must enable. The moment your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details which you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
