Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited since you'll not have root access to the web server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely using SSH, you can get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't include this feature by default, you can add it with several clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can even choose what password you would want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared many Help articles in which you can easily find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided by default, and with others, it can be added as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the needed login information inside the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can pick the password which you'll use and if you want, you may change it constantly with a few mouse clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you may use in advance, as we've listed all of them along with examples of how they are used so as to perform a specific task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server offers that we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you have to activate. Once your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will 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 may download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
