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 server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited since you will not have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access is provided with all Linux hosting we offer you. With some of them, it's offered as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade which you can include with a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password that you shall use and, if required, you will be able to change it with a few clicks from the same location. All the commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it easily via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will 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 may be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. A detailed list of the commands that you can carry out shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you can perform in your account and each one is accompanied by a number of instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans provide this feature as standard. You'll not have to add or enable anything manually - the minute your web server is ready and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the hosting server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You'll be able to install any app you require and which will work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
