Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited as you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access is available with all cloud web hosting which we provide. With some of them, it is provided by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade which you can add with a few mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. You may get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you can also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can choose the password that you shall use and, if required, you'll be able to modify it with a few clicks from the same place. All the commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to get SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all accounts. If your plan does not support this feature by default, you will be able to add it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the info which you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, if required. These login credentials are also needed if you would 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 provide. A complete list of the commands which you can carry out shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform in your account and each is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you must enable. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux server, reboot the whole server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
