Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited because you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting package deal which you’ve picked through the signup procedure offers SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with only a click from your Hepsia CP. If you have chosen a different package, the SSH access function can be added via the Upgrades menu and it will become available at once. The information you need to connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same spot and you shall be able to change it anytime. All of the commands that are allowed are listed in the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you need to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you shall be able to include it with ease using the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will discover the details that you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files through a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer. A detailed list of the commands you can carry out will offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform inside your account and each is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages which we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you need to activate. As soon as your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do using SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or just 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.
