Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the alternatives are limited as you'll not have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux shared web hosting packages we offer you. With some of them, it's offered by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can include with a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you will also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password which you'll use and, if necessary, you shall be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same location. All of the commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article together with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the package deal you have picked incorporates this feature by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can perform together with a number of examples to give you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely via any FTP app that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS

If you order a new virtual private server from us, it shall provide full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all packages, so you shall not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up right after you purchase it and the moment you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect via the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions regarding the commands you can use. You will have full root access, so you can set up and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
