Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited as you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux cloud hosting that we offer. With some of them, it is included as standard, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can add with a couple of mouse clicks from your website hosting CP. You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it in which you can also find the information which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to choose the password which you shall use and, if needed, you shall be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same place. All of the commands which can be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you'll be able to include it easily via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you will find the info that you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - 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 want to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide. A complete list of the commands that you can carry out will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each is accompanied by a few instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server offers we offer include SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function 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 via the login details that you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do via SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
