Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the alternatives are limited since you'll not have root access to the web server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine 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 Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

If the website hosting package deal which you’ve chosen throughout the signup procedure comes with SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this function with simply a click within your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have picked a different package, the SSH access feature could be included using the Upgrades menu and it will become available at once. All the details which you need connect shall be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same place and you shall be able to modify it anytime. All commands that are permitted are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With some packages, the feature is included by default, and with others, it can be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You will find the required login info within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to pick the password you'll use and if you want to, you can change it on a regular basis with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use upfront, as we've listed them all along with examples of how they are used so as to accomplish a certain task.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, because all of our packages offer this feature by default. You won't need to include or enable anything manually - as soon as your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your web sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be isolated from the other accounts on the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You can set up any app you require and which will run on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases easily and quickly.
