Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the alternatives are limited since you'll not have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

If the cloud web hosting plan which you’ve picked throughout the signup process provides SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this function with just a click within your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've selected a different plan, the SSH access function could be included through the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. All the details that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same location and you shall be able to change it whenever you want. All of the commands which are permitted are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which package you select when you sign up. With some plans, the function is included as standard, and with others, it can be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the required login info in the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to choose the password you'll use and if you want, you can change it on a regular basis with several clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands you can use in advance, as we have listed them along with examples of how they are used in order to execute a specific task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which VPS web hosting plans you select when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans provide this feature by default. You will not have to include or enable anything by hand - as soon as your server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you may connect and begin working on your websites or any software you want to install and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from all the other accounts inside the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You can set up any application which you need and that will work on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
