Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited since you won't have root access to the server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions which are performed inside 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 web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via 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 Shared Hosting

If the shared hosting plan that you’ve chosen through the signup process comes with SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. In case you have picked a different plan, the SSH access feature could be included through the Upgrades menu and it will become available right away. All the information which you need connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same location and you shall be able to modify it at any time. All the commands which are permitted are listed in the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH regardless of which package you choose when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is offered by default, while with others, it may be included as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the required login information in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to choose the password that you'll use and if you would like, you may change it regularly with a few clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use in advance, since we've listed them all together with examples of how they are used to execute a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You shall be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which Linux VPS packages you pick when you sign up, because all of our plans come with this function as standard. You won't have to add or activate anything manually - immediately after your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you can connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from the other accounts inside the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You'll be able to install any app which you need and that will run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
