Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you simply won't have root access to the server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just 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 Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the website hosting which you have chosen comes with this function by default. If not, you may add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You will discover all the details that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, as well as comprehensive Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section at any time with a few clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you shall be able to add it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you shall find the information which you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated anytime, if needed. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. A detailed list of the commands that you can carry out will offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each is accompanied by a number of instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions feature SSH access by default, so you will not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you will be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials which you've chosen throughout the signup process. Because the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands that you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you can work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and safe way.
