Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited since you shall not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a certain 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 plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is offered with all cloud services that we offer you. With some of them, it's featured by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can add with a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you shall also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may choose the password which you will use and, if needed, you'll be able to change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same place. All of the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you shall be able to include it effortlessly via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you shall discover the details you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also needed if you'd like to upload files using a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A detailed list of the commands you can execute shall give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, since all of our packages include this function by default. You'll not have to include or activate anything by hand - the instant your server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you could connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software you want to install and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You could install any app which you need and that will run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
