Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the alternatives are limited as you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They're all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access could be enabled with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud web hosting service you have selected includes this feature by default. If not, you may include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You will discover all the information and facts that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as in depth Help articles in which we've listed all the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section anytime with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this function by default, you'll be able to add it with ease through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the info that you need to connect to the server via 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 necessary. These login credentials are also required if you would like to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide you with. A thorough list of the commands which you can carry out shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform in your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content no matter which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, because all our packages offer this feature as standard. You will not need to add or allow anything manually - immediately after your website hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software that you would like to install and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from the other accounts in the physical server, you will be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You can install any app that you need and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
