Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited as you will not have root access to the server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Web Hosting
SSH access is available with all web hosting we offer you. With some of them, it is provided by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade you can include with several clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you can also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password that you shall use and, if required, you'll be able to change it with a couple of clicks from the same spot. All the commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with simply a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you shall be able to include it with ease via the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the details you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, if needed. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide you with. A comprehensive list of the commands you can carry out will offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a couple of examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages we offer include SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you have to activate. Once your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
