Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the possibilities are limited because you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access could be permitted with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting that you have picked comes with this feature as standard. If not, you can include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will find all the details which you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, along with detailed Help articles in which we've listed all the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password could be modified from the exact same section anytime with a couple of clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted 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 a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all accounts. If your package does not support this function by default, you'll be able to add it without difficulty through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the info that you need to connect to the server through 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 required. These login credentials are also essential if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. A complete list of the commands that you can perform shall give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each one is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, since all our plans provide this feature as standard. You won't have to add or activate anything manually - immediately after your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you want to install and run on the web server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts on the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You may set up any app you require and that shall work on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
