Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the alternatives are limited as you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just 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 OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

If you have a website hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature by default, you can easily add it with several mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. In 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 can also choose what password you would like to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a number of Help articles in which you can easily find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You can select the password you'll use and if you want, you may change it on a regular basis with a few mouse clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands which you can use beforehand, because we have listed all of them together with examples of how they are used so as to execute a particular task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content no matter which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, due to the fact that all of our plans come with this feature as standard. You will not need to add or allow anything by hand - as soon as your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software which you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from the other accounts inside the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You may set up any application you require and that will work on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
