Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the options are limited because you will not have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared website hosting plan that you've chosen comes with this function as standard. If not, you may include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will find all the information which you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, as well as in depth Help articles where we've listed each of the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the very same section anytime with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the package which you have selected incorporates this function by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have various help articles and video lessons regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can perform alongside several examples to provide you with a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely via any FTP application which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to handle your content no matter which VPS web hosting plans you select when you sign up, due to the fact that all our packages come with this function by default. You'll not need to add or enable anything manually - the instant your web server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from the other accounts on the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application which you need and which will work on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases easily and quickly.
