Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared hosting which you have selected comes with this function by default. If not, you could include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You will discover all the information that you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, along with in depth Help articles where we have listed each of the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with several clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files 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 a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you shall be able to add it with ease using the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you will find the info that you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, if required. These login credentials are also essential if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. A comprehensive list of the commands you can carry out will provide you with 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

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, because all of our plans provide this function as standard. You'll not need to include or allow anything manually - as soon as your server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you may connect and start working on your sites or any software that you want to set up and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be separated from all the other accounts inside the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application you need and which shall run on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
