Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a shared website hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't provide this feature as standard, you could add it with several mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can even pick what password you want to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles where you can find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which package you pick when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is included as standard, and with others, it could be added as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You will find the necessary login information in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to choose the password you'll use and if you'd like, you could change it all the time with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use beforehand, as we have listed all of them along with examples of how they are used in order to perform a certain task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, since all of our plans include this feature as standard. You won't need to include or allow anything by hand - the minute your web server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login info, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your web sites or any software that you want to set up and run on the web server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts in the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You may set up any application which you need and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
