Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited since you simply won't have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
SSH access may be permitted with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux website hosting that you have picked includes this function as standard. If not, you could add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You will find all the information you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, alongside in depth Help articles where we have listed each of the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the very same section at any time with several clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the function is provided by default, while with others, it could be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the needed login information within the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could select the password which you'll use and if you would like, you could change it all the time with a couple of mouse clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands you can use upfront, since we have listed them all alongside examples of how they are used in order to perform a specific task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
If you get a new virtual private server from us, it shall provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The feature is included by default with all package deals, so you won't need to activate or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up right after you buy it and the instant you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you can connect via the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You will have full root access, so that you may set up and run any application which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
