Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you won't have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
When you have a cloud hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely through SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not include this feature as standard, you may add it with several mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also pick what password you would like to use, considering that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you can find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you will be able to add it effortlessly via the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the details 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 could be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also essential if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer. A detailed list of the commands that you can perform shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each is accompanied by a few instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans include SSH access as standard, so you won't have to include any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you will be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have picked through the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands which you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll 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 apps which you install in a fast and safe way.
