Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the possibilities are limited since you will not have root access to the machine, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are performed inside 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 option to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a specific 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 Hosting

If the cloud hosting package that you’ve selected through the signup procedure offers SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with only a mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have picked a different package, the SSH access feature can be included via the Upgrades menu and it will become available immediately. All the details which you need connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same location and you will be able to modify it whenever you want. All the commands which are allowed are listed in the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with simply a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you will be able to include it easily via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you'll find the info which 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 could be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer. A comprehensive list of the commands that you can execute will give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform in your account and each is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you must enable. The moment your new server is prepared, you shall 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 shall be sent to you via e mail too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
