Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited because you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using 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 don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

When you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you may get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't offer this feature as standard, you can easily add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you would like to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared many Help articles where you can find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you could include it from the hosting CP if necessary - even just for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the function with just one mouse click from the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you may type the password which you want to use, because it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you can also change it as frequently as you need. A full list of the commands which can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and several examples. An extra function after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to use SSH to handle your content no matter which Linux VPS web hosting packages you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all our packages come with this function as standard. You will not need to include or enable anything by hand - the minute your web server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login information, you'll be able to connect and start working on your websites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be isolated from the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You could set up any application that you need and that shall work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
