Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you will not have root access to the web server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They're all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux cloud web hosting packages which we offer. With some of them, it is provided by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade that you can include with just a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. You can get SSH access through the section related to it where you will also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to select the password that you'll use and, if necessary, you shall be able to change it with a few clicks from the same place. All the commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using 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'll be able to get SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it with ease through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the information you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop application - 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 required if you would like to upload files through a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A detailed list of the commands which you can execute shall give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform in your account and each is accompanied by a couple of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server solutions which we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you must enable. The moment your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot the entire server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
