Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the choices are limited since you will not have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

If the website hosting plan which you’ve selected through the signup procedure provides SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this function with only a click from your Hepsia CP. If you've picked a different package, the SSH access feature may be included via the Upgrades menu and it will become available instantly. All the details that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All of the commands which are permitted are listed in the Help articles that we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the plan which you have chosen comes with this feature by default, you just need to activate the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and video tutorials regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire 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 set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely and securely using any FTP app which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions which we offer include SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you need to enable. The minute your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you've entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
