Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you shall not have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access may be enabled with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud website hosting which you have picked includes this feature by default. If not, you could include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it instantly. You will find all the information that you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, as well as in depth Help articles where we've listed the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be changed from the exact same section at any time with several clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the package deal that you've selected incorporates this function by default, you just need to allow the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and video lessons regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands which you can execute alongside several examples to offer you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information securely through any FTP application that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server solutions that we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you should enable. The minute your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do through SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
