Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the choices are limited as you will not have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions that are executed 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 install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux shared website hosting packages which we offer. With some of them, it is included as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade that you can include with just a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access from the section related to it in which you can also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to select the password which you'll use and, if needed, you will be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same place. All the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the package you have picked includes this function by default, you just have to activate the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and educational videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can carry out together with a number of examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely and securely via any FTP application which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which Linux VPS web hosting packages you choose when you sign up, because all of our packages include this feature as standard. You will not have to add or enable anything manually - the instant your server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login information, you'll be able to connect and start working on your sites or any software which you want to install and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts in the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You may set up any app which you need and that will run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
