Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web 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 won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the choices are limited because you shall not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option 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 via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
If you have a cloud web hosting
account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not offer this feature by default, you could add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared many Help articles in which you can find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account using SSH regardless of which plan you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided by default, and with others, it may be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the needed login information within the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could pick the password that you'll use and if you want to, you may change it regularly with several clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use in advance, because we've listed them alongside examples of how they are used to carry out a specific task. As soon as 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 Web Hosting
All our virtual private server
offers provide SSH access as standard, so you will not need to include any upgrades or activate anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials that you have picked during the signup process. As the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands which you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage just about everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and safe way.
