Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the alternatives are limited because you won't have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up 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, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access is featured with all cloud web hosting we offer. With some of them, it is provided by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can include with several clicks in your website hosting CP. You can obtain SSH access from the section related to it where you shall also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password that you will use and, if necessary, you shall be able to modify it with a few mouse clicks from the same location. All the commands that can be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to receive SSH access to it with a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it easily using the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the details 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 want to upload files through a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. A thorough list of the commands which you can carry out will give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, because all our packages come with this function by default. You won't have to add or allow anything manually - immediately after your web server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you'll be able to connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the hosting server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be separated from the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You can install any app you require and that shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases quickly and easily.
