Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited because you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

SSH access is available with all website hosting which we offer you. With some of them, it is provided by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade you can add with a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you will also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can select the password that you shall use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with a few clicks from the same spot. All of the commands that can be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and handle them through SSH. If the plan which you have chosen comes with this feature by default, you just have to allow the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands that you can execute together with various examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely and securely using any FTP application which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless which Linux VPS packages you pick when you sign up, since all of our plans offer this function as standard. You won't have to add or allow anything by hand - the moment your server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you may connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software you want to set up and run on the hosting server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You can install any application you require and which will work on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases easily and quickly.
