Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
SSH access is offered with all Linux hosting which we offer you. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade which you can add with several mouse clicks from your website hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you will use and, if required, you'll be able to change it with several clicks from the same spot. All of the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH irrespective of which plan you choose when you sign up. With some packages, the function is provided as standard, while with others, it could be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the needed login details within the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to choose the password that you will use and if you'd like, you may change it all the time with a few clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands which you can use upfront, as we have listed them all along with examples of how they are used so as to execute a specific task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server solutions that we offer include SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you have to activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details which you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot the whole server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
