Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just 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 lot of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

If the cloud web hosting plan which you’ve chosen throughout the signup procedure includes SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with only a click in your Hepsia CP. In case you have picked a different package, the SSH access function could be added using the Upgrades menu and it'll become available immediately. All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same spot and you shall be able to modify it whenever you want. All the commands which are allowed are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them through SSH. If the plan which you have chosen includes this function by default, you simply need to activate the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have various help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands which you can perform along with a number of examples to give you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely via any FTP application that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans come with this function as standard. You won't need to add or allow anything by hand - the minute your web server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login info, you could connect and begin working on your web sites or any software that you would like to install and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts in the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You may install any app you require and that shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases easily and quickly.
