Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. These are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need 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 hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux hosting which you have selected provides this feature as standard. If not, you may add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You'll discover all the details you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we have listed all of the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the exact same section at any time with several clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided as standard, while with others, it can be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the needed login details within the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to select the password that you'll use and if you'd like, you may change it regularly with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use in advance, because we have listed all of them alongside examples of how they are used so as to carry out a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you purchase a new VPS server from us, it shall provide full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to control everything via an SSH console. The function is provided by default with all packages, so you won't need to activate or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up right after you order it and the moment you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you could connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so you can set up and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
