Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions that are carried out within 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 option to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not come with this feature by default, you could add it with a couple of mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared many Help articles where you can find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you shall be able to add it with ease through the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you shall discover the info that you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide you with. A complete list of the commands that you can execute shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform in your account and each is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server offers that we offer include SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you must enable. Once your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
