Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the possibilities are limited because you'll not have root access to the machine, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux cloud packages we provide. With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade which you can add with a few clicks from your website hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you shall also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can select the password which you will use and, if required, you shall be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same spot. All of the commands which can be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article together with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get SSH access to it with simply a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you'll be able to include it with ease using the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will find the details that 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 may be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also essential 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 that we offer. A thorough list of the commands which you can carry out shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You will be able to use SSH to control your content no matter which Linux VPS packages you select when you sign up, since all of our packages come with this function by default. You won't have to include or enable anything by hand - the minute your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you can connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the machine. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts in the physical server, you will be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You could set up any app you require and that shall work on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
