Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
If the cloud website hosting plan which you’ve selected through the signup procedure provides SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this function with a mouse click in your Hepsia CP. In case you have chosen a different plan, the SSH access feature can be included via the Upgrades menu and it shall become available straightaway. All the details that you need to 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'll be able to modify it whenever you want. All of the commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH irrespective of which package you pick when you sign up. With some packages, the function is offered as standard, and with others, it could be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You will find the necessary login info inside the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can select the password that you'll use and if you want to, you may change it all the time with several clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you can use upfront, because we've listed them along with examples of how they are used to accomplish a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS
When you acquire a new virtual private server from us, it shall come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The feature comes by default with all packages, so you shall not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up soon after you get it and the minute you receive the Welcome e mail with the login info, 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 isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you may set up and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
