Secure Shell, also 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 info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the possibilities are limited as you'll not have root access to the web server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ 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 Shared Hosting

If the shared hosting package which you’ve chosen through the signup process features SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this function with simply a mouse click inside your Hepsia CP. In case you have picked a different package, the SSH access function may be added via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available right away. All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed within 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 location and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All of the commands which are allowed are listed inside the Help articles that we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you should 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

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you shall be able to add it with ease using the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will find the information which you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, if required. These login credentials are also needed if you'd like to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer. A complete list of the commands you can perform shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, because all of our plans provide this function by default. You won't need to include or allow anything manually - immediately after your web server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your websites or any software you want to install and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You can set up any app which you need and which shall run on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
