Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you'll not have root access to the web server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

When you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you can obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't provide this feature by default, you could add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can even select what password you want to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared many Help articles in which you can find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the package deal you have selected includes this feature by default, you just have to activate the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have various help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can execute alongside a number of examples to give you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely via any FTP app that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you acquire a new VPS server from our company, it will offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The function is included as standard with all package deals, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up shortly after you purchase it and the moment you receive the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you may set up and run any app which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
