Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't 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

SSH access may be enabled with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting you have chosen comes with this function as standard. If not, you can include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the information and facts which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as thorough Help articles where we have listed each of the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH regardless of which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is included as standard, while with others, it may be included as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the needed login info inside the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can select the password you'll use and if you'd like, you can change it constantly with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you can use upfront, as we've listed them all alongside examples of how they are used so as to carry out a specific task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which VPS plans you pick when you sign up, because all our packages include this feature as standard. You will not have to include or enable anything manually - as soon as your website hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you can connect and start working on your web sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be isolated from the other accounts on the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You can set up any application you need and that will run on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
