Secure Shell, also 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 website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited since you shall not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux shared web hosting services that we offer you. With some of them, it's included as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade that you can include with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access through the section related to it where you can also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password which you shall use and, if necessary, you'll be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same location. All commands which can be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is offered by default, while with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the needed login details inside the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to pick the password that you'll use and if you want to, you can change it all the time with several clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands that you can use upfront, since we've listed them all together with examples of how they are used in order to execute a certain task. As soon as 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 Hosting
The virtual private server plans which we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you have to enable. The minute your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical 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 will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
