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 hosting server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited since you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access could be enabled with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting package that you've chosen provides this function by default. If not, you could add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You'll discover all the information which you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as comprehensive Help articles where we have listed all of the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the exact same section anytime with a few clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you'll be able to include it with ease through the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you'll find the details that you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated anytime, if required. These login credentials are also needed if you would like to upload files through a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer you. A thorough list of the commands which you can execute will offer you a better idea of what tasks you can perform in your account and each one is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans which we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you should activate. The moment your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
