Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that could 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 server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install 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 do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access could be enabled with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud web hosting plan you have chosen comes with this feature as standard. If not, you can add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will discover all the information and facts which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles in which we've listed all the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the same section anytime with a couple of mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you can easily add it via the hosting CP if needed - even only for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with a single click from the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you can type the password which you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you can also change it as often as you require. The full list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS hosting plans you choose when you sign up, because all of our plans include this function as standard. You'll not have to add or enable anything manually - the moment your website hosting server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you would like to install and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be separated from the other accounts inside the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You could install any application you require and which will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases quickly and easily.
