Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited because you'll not have root access to the web server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install 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 plenty of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
SSH access may be enabled with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the hosting that you've selected comes with this function by default. If not, you could add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You will discover all the details which you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as thorough Help articles where we've listed the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the very same section anytime with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to obtain 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 plan doesn't support this feature by default, you shall be able to add it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you shall find the details you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. A thorough list of the commands you can perform will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you can perform inside your account and each is accompanied by a couple of examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages that we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you must enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or simply 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.
