Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd 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 web server, for instance, the options are limited because you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

SSH access may be enabled with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared web hosting plan that you have selected provides this function as standard. If not, you may add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the information and facts that you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as thorough Help articles where we have listed the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the same section anytime with a couple of mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll 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

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the package which you have selected incorporates this function by default, you just have to activate the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and video lessons concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands which you can perform along with several examples to offer you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely and securely via any FTP application which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages feature SSH access as standard, so you will not need to add any upgrades or activate anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've chosen through the signup process. As the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you could run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and safe way.
