Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you'll not have root access to the machine, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability 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 via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
If the shared web hosting package that you’ve selected through the signup process provides SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click in your Hepsia CP. In case you have picked a different plan, the SSH access feature may be added via the Upgrades menu and it will become available right away. All the details you need to connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All commands that are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH regardless of which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is included as standard, while with others, it can be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the necessary login details within the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may select the password you'll use and if you would like, you could change it regularly with a couple of clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands which you can use in advance, since we have listed them all alongside examples of how they are used so as to accomplish a particular task. Once 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
The VPS server solutions which we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you have to activate. Once your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details which you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or can't do through SSH. You can download, install 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 with virtually no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
