Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the options are limited because you will 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 executed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access is offered with all cloud website hosting we provide. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade which you can add with several clicks in your hosting CP. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you shall also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password that you will use and, if required, you shall be able to modify it with a few mouse clicks from the same place. All the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to get 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 will be able to include it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you will discover the information you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - 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 want to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. A comprehensive list of the commands that you can perform shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you can perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a few instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server offers include SSH access by default, so you will not have to add any upgrades or activate anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login information, you shall be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen during the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions with regards to the commands that you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage pretty much everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and protected way.
