Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is 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 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you won't have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If the cloud hosting plan which you’ve chosen throughout the signup procedure provides SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this function with a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. If you have picked a different plan, the SSH access function can be included through the Upgrades menu and it'll become available right away. All the information that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within 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 spot and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which plan you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided by default, while with others, it may be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the required login details inside the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to select the password that you'll use and if you want, you could change it all the time with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use in advance, because we have listed them alongside examples of how they are used to perform a particular task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server solutions provide SSH access as standard, so you will not have to add any upgrades or activate anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login details, you will be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials that you have selected during the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any 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 which you install in a fast and safe way.
