Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the choices are limited as you'll not have root access to the web server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. These are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access can be permitted with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud hosting you have selected offers this function as standard. If not, you may add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the information and facts that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, along with in depth Help articles where we have listed all of the commands which you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the very same section anytime with a few mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with simply a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you will be able to add it easily through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you will find the details you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, if needed. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer you. A comprehensive list of the commands that you can execute shall 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 Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you need to enable. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details which you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
