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 website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the options are limited as you simply won't have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain 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 number of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux cloud website hosting which we offer. With some of them, it is included by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade that you can include with a few mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. You may get SSH access from the section related to it where you will also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to pick the password which you shall use and, if needed, you shall be able to change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same spot. All of the commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you shall be able to add it easily through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll find the details that you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. A comprehensive list of the commands which you can perform will give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform in your account and each is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

When you get a new virtual private server from us, it'll feature full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The feature is provided as standard with all packages, so you will not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up soon after you buy it and as soon as you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated 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 could install and run any app that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
