Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited as you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting 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 plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

SSH access is featured with all shared web hosting plans which we provide. With some of them, it is included by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade that you can add with several mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section related to it where you will also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password that you will use and, if needed, you will be able to change it with a few clicks from the same location. All commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access function is allowed 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 Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and handle them via SSH. If the package deal that you have chosen comes with this function by default, you just have to allow the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands that you can execute together with several examples to give you a better understanding 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 safely via any FTP application that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you have to activate. Once your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
