Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the options are limited as you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up 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 do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting package that you've picked includes this feature by default. If not, you may include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You will discover all the details which you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we have listed each of the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section at any time with a couple of clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH irrespective of which plan you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided by default, and with others, it may be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the required login details inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could select the password that you'll use and if you'd like, you may change it all the time with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands you can use beforehand, because we've listed them all along with examples of how they are used so as to perform a specific task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

If you get a new virtual private server from us, it'll offer full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to manage everything through an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all package deals, so you will not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up soon after you buy it and the instant you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you may connect through the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions regarding the commands you can use. You will have full root access, so that you can install and run any application that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
