Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited as you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access is provided with all cloud hosting we provide. With some of them, it's included as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade that you can add with a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting CP. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password that you shall use and, if required, you shall be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same location. All of the commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the package deal which you have chosen incorporates this function by default, you just need to allow the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and video tutorials concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can perform along with various examples to offer you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely via any FTP app that supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you order a new VPS server from us, it shall offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything using an SSH console. The function comes by default with all package deals, so you shall not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up soon after you get it and the minute you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
