Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited as you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

When you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not offer this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can even choose what password you would want to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles in which you may find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and handle them through SSH. If the plan that you've selected comes with this feature by default, you just have to activate the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands you can carry out together with various examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely and securely via any FTP app which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you get a new VPS server from us, it'll offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The feature comes by default with all plans, so you will not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up right after you buy it and the moment you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you can connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you may install and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
