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 info between a web server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only 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 OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

SSH access can be permitted with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the web hosting plan which you have picked offers this function by default. If not, you may include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will find all the information and facts that you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, along with in depth Help articles in which we've listed the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you are able to add it from the hosting CP if necessary - even just for the current month. Either way, you can activate and de-activate the feature with one click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you could type in the password that you'd like to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you could also change it as much as you want. The full list of the commands that can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a couple of instances. An extra function after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you purchase a new VPS server from us, it will feature full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The function is included as standard with all package deals, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up immediately after you buy it and as soon as you receive the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect via the server’s main IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so you can install and run any application which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
