Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options 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, etc. These are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or only 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 OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access can be allowed with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared website hosting plan that you have selected comes with this function as standard. If not, you could add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You'll discover all the information which you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, along with detailed Help articles where we have listed each of the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH no matter which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the function is offered as standard, and with others, it could be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall discover the needed login info in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may pick the password you'll use and if you'd like, you can change it all the time with several clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands that you can use upfront, because we have listed them all together with examples of how they are used to perform a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You will be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS hosting plans you choose when you sign up, because all of our plans come with this function as standard. You won't need to include or activate anything manually - as soon as your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you may connect and begin working on your websites or any software which you want to install and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from all of the other accounts within the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You'll be able to install any application you need and that shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
