Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the possibilities are limited because you simply won't have root access to the server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access is featured with all cloud web hosting
that we provide. 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 hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you shall also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can select the password which you will use and, if required, you shall be able to change it with a few clicks from the same location. All of the commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is enabled 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 Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you shall be able to obtain SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you shall be able to add it effortlessly using the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the information that you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, if required. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide. An extensive list of the commands which you can perform will offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform inside your account and each is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
If you buy a new virtual private server
from us, it'll provide full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The function is included by default with all packages, so you won't need to allow or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up right after you purchase it and as soon as you get the Welcome email with the login info, you could connect using the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you may set up and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
