Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the options are limited since you won't have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall 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 employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access can be allowed with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared website hosting plan you have chosen includes this function by default. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You'll find all the details you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, along with detailed Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it easily through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also needed 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 you. A thorough list of the commands you can perform shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a number of instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you need to enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do using SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
