Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the options are limited because you won't have root access to the server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
When you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not include this feature as standard, you could add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also pick what password you would want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared several Help articles where you could find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH no matter which package you select when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is offered as standard, while with others, it can be added as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the needed login details within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could select the password that you will use and if you want to, you could change it all the time with a couple of clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands which you can use upfront, because we have listed them along with examples of how they are used to carry out a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
If you obtain 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 handle everything through an SSH console. The feature is included by default with all package deals, so you won't have to activate or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up immediately after you buy it and the minute you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you may connect via the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
