Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the alternatives are limited as you'll not have root access to the server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting package that you’ve selected throughout the signup process comes with SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia CP. In case you have selected a different plan, the SSH access feature can be included using the Upgrades menu and it will become available instantly. All the details which you need connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to modify it anytime. All the commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this feature by default, you will be able to add it with ease via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you will discover the information you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated at any time, if needed. These login credentials are also needed if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide you with. A thorough list of the commands that you can perform will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you order a new virtual private server from our company, it will come with full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The feature is included as standard with all plans, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up right after you purchase it and the moment you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect via the server’s main IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
