Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the options are limited because you'll not have root access to the machine, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

When you have a shared hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you can obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not come with this feature by default, you can easily add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within 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 also pick what password you would want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you could find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH irrespective of which plan you select when you sign up. With some plans, the function is included as standard, and with others, it can be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You will discover the necessary login information in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to pick the password that you will use and if you want, you can change it on a regular basis with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands you can use upfront, since we have listed all of them together with examples of how they are used to perform a specific task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions feature SSH access as standard, so you will not have to include any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login information, you shall be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials which you've selected through the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands that you could run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage virtually everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and safe way.
