Secure Shell, also 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. As the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the options are limited as you shall not have root access to the server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely through SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not offer this feature as standard, you could add it with a few mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you want to use, considering that it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles where you can easily find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them through SSH. If the package deal that you've picked includes this function by default, you just need to activate the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can carry out along with a number of examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely using any FTP application that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans provide this function by default. You won't have to add or allow anything by hand - immediately after your web server is ready and you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you want to install and run on the hosting server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be separated from the other accounts within the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You may set up any application which you need and that shall work on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
