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. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited because you'll not have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able 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 with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access is available with all cloud web hosting that we offer. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade which you can include with just a few clicks from your web hosting CP. You can obtain SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you shall also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password which you shall use and, if needed, you shall be able to change it with several clicks from the same location. All the commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access function is allowed 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

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and handle them through SSH. If the package you have picked comes with this function by default, you just need to allow the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and educational videos about the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands that you can execute along with various examples to provide you with a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely through any FTP app that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server offers that we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you should activate. Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
