Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited because you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access could be permitted with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud website hosting package which you have chosen offers this feature by default. If not, you may include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the details you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, along with in depth Help articles where we've listed the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the very same section anytime with a few clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH no matter which plan you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the function is provided by default, while with others, it may be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the necessary login info in the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may select the password you'll use and if you want to, you may change it regularly with several clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use beforehand, as we have listed all of them along with examples of how they are used to carry out a particular task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which Linux VPS packages you pick when you sign up, as all of our packages provide this feature as standard. You'll not need to add or activate anything by hand - immediately after your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect and start working on your websites or any software that you would like to install and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You can set up any application which you need and that shall run on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases quickly and easily.
