Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited because you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux cloud website hosting we provide. With some of them, it is offered as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can include with a few clicks in your hosting CP. You may get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you shall use and, if required, you'll be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same location. All of the commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them using SSH. If the package deal that you have chosen comes with this feature by default, you simply need to allow the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands you can execute together with a number of examples to give you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely through any FTP app which supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions feature SSH access as standard, so you won't need to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login info, you'll be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen throughout the signup procedure. Because the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you may run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage just about everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and safe way.
