Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

In case you have a hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't come with this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you could find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this feature by default, you'll be able to add it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the details which you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you would like to upload files using a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide. A thorough list of the commands that you can carry out will give you a better idea of what tasks you could perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you must enable. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do through SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
