Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the choices are limited because you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They're all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

If the shared website hosting package which you’ve picked throughout the signup process provides SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this feature with just a click in your Hepsia CP. If you've selected a different package, the SSH access feature could be included via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available at once. All the info you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to modify it anytime. All the commands that are allowed are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to control your content regardless which VPS hosting plans you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all our packages provide this function as standard. You will not need to add or allow anything by hand - the moment your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you may connect and start working on your sites or any software which you want to install and run on the machine. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all the other accounts inside the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You can set up any application you need and which will work on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
