Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited because you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux hosting packages which we provide. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade you can include with just a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section related to it where you will also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password which you will use and, if needed, you shall be able to change it with several mouse clicks from the same location. All commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled 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

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and manage them using SSH.

If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands that you can carry out alongside various examples to give you a better idea of what you could do.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server solutions which we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you have to enable. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details which you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
