Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited as you won't have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability 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 with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can easily obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't provide this feature as standard, you may add it with a few clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can even choose what password you want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a number of Help articles in which you could find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the plan you have picked incorporates this feature by default, you just need to enable the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have various help articles and instructional videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands that you can carry out together with various examples to provide you with a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely through any FTP application that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages that we offer provide SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you have to enable. The minute your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do via SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
