Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the alternatives are limited as you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If the cloud hosting package deal that you’ve selected throughout the signup process features SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this feature with a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. If you have chosen a different package, the SSH access function may be added via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available instantly. The information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same place and you will be able to modify it at any time. All the commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you need to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH regardless of which plan you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided as standard, and with others, it could be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the needed login info within the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could choose the password that you will use and if you'd like, you can change it all the time with a few clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you may use in advance, as we've listed them along with examples of how they are used in order to execute a certain task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, since all our plans offer this feature by default. You'll not have to include or activate anything manually - as soon as your server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login information, you may connect and start working on your sites or any software you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application which you need and which will run on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
