Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited as you shall not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't require 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 web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux hosting which we offer you. With some of them, it's featured as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade which you can add with a few mouse clicks from your website hosting Control Panel. You could 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 may select the password that you'll use and, if necessary, you will be able to modify it with a few clicks from the same spot. All commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through 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 package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided as standard, while with others, it could be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You will find the needed login info 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 which you'll use and if you want to, you can change it constantly with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you can use beforehand, since we have listed all of them together with examples of how they are used so as to execute a certain task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you must enable. Once your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details which you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
