Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited as you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are executed 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 set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access could be enabled with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared website hosting service that you have picked provides this function as standard. If not, you can include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You'll find all the information and facts you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, alongside detailed Help articles where we have listed each of the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the exact same section at any time with a few mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the package that you have picked comes with this function by default, you simply need to allow the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and instructional videos concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands you can perform together with numerous examples to offer you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely via any FTP application which supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server solutions provide SSH access by default, so you will not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen through the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands that you can run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
