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 web server and a client. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux website hosting that you've picked comes with this feature as standard. If not, you can include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the information that you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, along with detailed Help articles where we have listed all of the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section anytime with several clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which plan you select when you sign up. With some packages, the function is provided by default, while with others, it can be included as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall discover the necessary login info inside the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to choose the password that you'll use and if you would like, you can change it regularly with several clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use beforehand, because we've listed them along with examples of how they are used to carry out a specific task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server packages we offer include SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you have to enable. The moment your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
