Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info 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 controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the choices are limited since you simply won't have root access to the website hosting 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 performed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature by default, you may add it with several mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you would like to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you may find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can include it via the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even only for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the function with one click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you can easily type in the password which you want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you can also change it as often as you require. The full list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a new virtual private server from our company, 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 feature is provided as standard with all packages, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up right after you order it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you can connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can set up and run any application which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
