Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the options are limited since you won't have root access to the server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting package deal that you’ve selected throughout the signup procedure provides SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this function with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've picked a different plan, the SSH access feature can be included via the Upgrades menu and it shall become available instantly. The information which you need connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same spot and you shall be able to change it at any time. All of the commands which are allowed are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them through SSH. If the plan that you've chosen incorporates this feature by default, you just have to activate the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can perform alongside numerous examples to offer you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information securely via any FTP app which supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you order a new VPS server from our company, it shall offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The feature is included by default with all package deals, so you won't need to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up shortly after you order it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you may connect via the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
