Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the options are limited as you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're 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'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Web Hosting
If the web hosting package that you’ve chosen through the signup process includes SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this feature with a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have picked a different package, the SSH access feature may be added via the Upgrades menu and it will become available right away. All the information which you need connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same location and you shall be able to change it whenever you want. All commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you need to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and handle them via SSH. If the package deal that you've picked includes this feature by default, you just need to activate the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands which you can carry out along with numerous examples to give you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely via any FTP application that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you have to activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details which you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
