Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting plan which you’ve picked during the signup procedure provides SSH access by default, you shall be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. If you've chosen a different package, the SSH access feature can be included using the Upgrades menu and it shall become available immediately. All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All commands that are allowed are listed within the Help articles that we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you need to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily include it via the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with just one click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you could enter the password which you want to use, because it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you could also change it as frequently as you require. A full list of the commands which can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few instances. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

When you obtain a new virtual private server from our company, it'll feature full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to control everything via an SSH console. The feature is provided by default with all packages, so you won't have to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up right after you buy it and as soon as you get the Welcome email with the login details, you can connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so you can set up and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
