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

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting package that you’ve selected throughout the signup process comes with SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia CP. In case you have picked a different package, the SSH access function may be included via the Upgrades menu and it shall become available at once. The information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All the commands which are permitted are listed in the Help articles which we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you should use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which plan you choose when you sign up. With some packages, the function is included as standard, and with others, it can be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll discover the required login info in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may pick the password that you will use and if you would like, you could change it on a regular basis with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use beforehand, because we have listed them all together with examples of how they are used to carry out a specific task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we offer include SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you have to enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details which you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
