Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the possibilities are limited because you will not have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access is offered with all Linux cloud website hosting that we offer you. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade you can add with just a few clicks in your hosting CP. You can get SSH access from the section related to it in which you can also find the information which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password that you'll use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same spot. All commands that may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the package deal you have chosen incorporates this function by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands you can perform together with a number of examples to offer you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information securely via any FTP application which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server solutions we offer feature SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature which you must enable. Once your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail too. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do through SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
