Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited as you'll not have root access to the machine, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared hosting you have picked comes with this feature as standard. If not, you may include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You will find all the information and facts that you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, as well as thorough Help articles in which we have listed the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with a couple of clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to receive SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it with ease via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you shall find the details you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer you. A complete list of the commands that you can carry out will give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform in your account and each one is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS
You will be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which Linux VPS packages you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans include this function as standard. You will not have to include or enable anything manually - the moment your server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you'll be able to connect and start working on your web sites or any software which you want to install and run on the machine. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be separated from the other accounts inside the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application you require and that shall run on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
