Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited as you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

If you have a hosting account with our company and you'd like to handle your content remotely using SSH, you could get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles where you can easily find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which plan you pick when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is included by default, while with others, it may be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the required login details inside the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can pick the password which you'll use and if you want, you can change it all the time with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you can use upfront, because we have listed them all along with examples of how they are used in order to accomplish a specific task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, as all of our packages include this function as standard. You won't need to add or activate anything manually - the minute your web server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you may connect and begin working on your sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the web server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be separated from the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You may install any app which you need and which will run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
