Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited since you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting plan that you’ve picked through the signup procedure features SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this function with just a mouse click within your Hepsia CP. In case you have chosen a different plan, the SSH access function could be added through the Upgrades menu and it shall become available right away. All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All commands that are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it easily using the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you shall find the info 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 can be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer you. A detailed list of the commands that you can perform shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each is accompanied by a few instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you need to enable. As soon as your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
