Secure Shell, better 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. As the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the choices are limited because you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is offered with all cloud hosting which we provide. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can add with a couple of clicks from your hosting CP. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you shall also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password which you will use and, if needed, you will be able to change it with a few clicks from the same spot. All the commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you'll 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 offer the possibility to access and manage them using SSH. If the plan that you've picked comes with this feature by default, you simply have to enable the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you can quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and educational 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 several examples to offer you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely and securely via any FTP app which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, since all our plans come with this feature by default. You will not need to add or enable anything manually - the instant your hosting server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you may connect and begin working on your websites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You'll be able to install any application which you need and which shall run on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
