Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

If the cloud web hosting package deal that you’ve chosen through the signup process provides SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this function with only a click within your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have picked a different package, the SSH access feature may be added through the Upgrades menu and it'll become available immediately. All the details that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within 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 anytime. All the commands that are allowed are listed in the Help articles that we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH irrespective of which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is offered as standard, while with others, it may be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the required login details within the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may choose the password that you'll use and if you want to, you may change it on a regular basis with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you may use upfront, since we have listed them alongside examples of how they are used so as to execute a specific task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you get a new VPS server from us, it'll come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything via an SSH console. The feature is included as standard with all plans, so you won't need to activate or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server shall be set up immediately after you get it and the moment you get the Welcome email with the login information, you can connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could install and run any app that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
