Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions that 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'll have the option 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 Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely using SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not come with this feature as standard, you can add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would like to use, considering that it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared many Help articles in which you may find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH irrespective of which package you pick when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is offered as standard, while with others, it may be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the required login information in the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could select the password you'll use and if you want, you may change it all the time with several clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands you can use beforehand, because we have listed them all along with examples of how they are used to execute a particular task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You will be able to use SSH to control your content no matter which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all of our packages offer this function by default. You won't have to add or enable anything by hand - immediately after your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you could connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you would like to install and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You'll be able to install any application that you need and which shall run on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
