Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you won't have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access is offered with all hosting plans which we provide. With some of them, it is featured as standard, while with others it's an additional upgrade that you can add with just a few mouse clicks from your website hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access from the section related to it in which you can also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to select the password which you will use and, if necessary, you'll be able to change it with a couple of clicks from the same location. All of the commands which can be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts. If your package does not support this function by default, you'll be able to include it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will discover the details that 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 necessary. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files using a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer you. A comprehensive list of the commands that you can perform will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you could perform in your account and each one is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS hosting plans you choose when you sign up, since all of our plans offer this feature by default. You won't need to add or activate anything by hand - the instant your web server is ready and you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you can connect and begin working on your web sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You may set up any app you require and that will run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
