Secure Shell, better 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. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the choices are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access is available with all shared hosting that we offer you. With some of them, it is included by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can add with just a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password that you shall use and, if necessary, you shall be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same location. All commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article together with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this function by default, you will be able to include it with ease using the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will discover the information which you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated anytime, if needed. These login credentials are also essential if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer you. A comprehensive list of the commands you can carry out will give you a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions come with SSH access by default, so you shall not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials which you've chosen throughout the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage pretty much everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and protected way.
