Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the possibilities are limited as you won't have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

When you have a website hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not offer this feature by default, you could add it with a couple of mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you would want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared numerous Help articles in which you can find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package that you've selected comes with this feature by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and educational videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands you can perform along with several examples to give you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely via any FTP app that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you have to activate. The minute your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
