Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall 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 with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

When you have a hosting account with our company and you want to manage your content remotely using SSH, you may get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not offer this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a number of Help articles where you can easily find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which plan you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided as standard, while with others, it may be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the needed login info within the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could choose the password you'll use and if you'd like, you may change it all the time with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands that you may use upfront, as we've listed them along with examples of how they are used so as to accomplish a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

If you buy a new virtual private server from our company, it shall provide full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything through an SSH console. The function is included by default with all packages, so you will not have to enable or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server shall be set up immediately after you order it and the moment you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you may connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You will have full root access, so that you may install and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
