Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited because you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They're all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability 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 with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

If the shared hosting plan that you’ve picked through the signup procedure provides SSH access by default, you shall be able to activate this function with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've picked a different package, the SSH access function could be included via the Upgrades menu and it shall become available instantly. The information which you need connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts.

When you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the details which you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, if needed. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide. A thorough list of the commands that you can perform shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform inside your account and each is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server packages we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you must activate. Once your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details which you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or can't do via SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
