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

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

When you have a cloud web hosting account with our company and you'd like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not provide this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you may find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is offered by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you can add it from the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even just for the current month. Either way, you could activate and de-activate the function with just one mouse click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you could input the password that you'd like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you could also change it as frequently as you want. A full list of the commands which can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you order a new VPS server from our company, it shall 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 included by default with all plans, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up shortly after you buy it and the minute you get the Welcome email with the login info, you may connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Given that 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 which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you can install and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
