Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the choices are limited as you'll not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access could be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud website hosting service you have picked offers this function as standard. If not, you can include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You'll discover all the info that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, alongside in depth Help articles in which we have listed the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the very same section at any time with a few clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you will be able to add it easily through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will discover 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 may be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A comprehensive list of the commands you can carry out will give you a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server solutions that we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you need to activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux server, reboot the whole server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
