Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited because you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through 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 particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

When you have a cloud hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely using SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't come with this feature as standard, you may add it with several clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also pick what password you would like to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a number of Help articles in which you may find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

You are able to select the password you'll use and if you'd like, you could change it all the time with a few clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands you can use upfront, since we've listed all of them together with examples of how they are used so as to carry out a particular task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which VPS hosting plans you pick when you sign up, because all of our plans provide this function as standard. You'll not need to add or enable anything by hand - immediately after your server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login information, you can connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts on the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You could install any app that you need and which will work on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases fast and easy.
