Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a server and a client. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited as you shall not have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular 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 applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the hosting service that you've selected includes this feature by default. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will discover all the info which you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, along with in depth Help articles in which we have listed each of the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password may be changed from the exact same section at any time with several clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily add it through the hosting CP if needed - even only for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the function with one mouse click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you may input the password which you want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you may also change it as frequently as you need. A full list of the commands that can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports such connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans we offer provide SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you should activate. The minute your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
