Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited as you won't have root access to the server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting service which you have selected provides this function as standard. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You'll discover all the information and facts that you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, as well as detailed Help articles in which we have listed all of the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section anytime with several clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH no matter which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is included as standard, while with others, it could be included as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You will find the needed login information inside the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to choose the password that you will use and if you want, you may change it constantly with a few mouse clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands which you can use beforehand, as we've listed all of them alongside examples of how they are used in order to execute a particular task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server solutions that we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you must enable. The minute your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details which you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
