Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited since you shall not have root access to the machine, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
If the cloud web hosting plan which you’ve chosen during the signup procedure provides SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have chosen a different plan, the SSH access feature may be included through the Upgrades menu and it'll become available right away. All the information that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All of the commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you should use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can include it through the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with only one click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you can easily enter the password you want to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you could also change it as often as you want. The full list of the commands which can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server offers feature SSH access as standard, so you will not have to include any upgrades or activate anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login info, you shall be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials which you've selected through the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts come with 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 others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage just about everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you may work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
