Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the possibilities are limited because you shall not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access is featured with all shared hosting which we offer. With some of them, it is offered by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade that you can include with a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting CP. You may get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you will also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can select the password which you will use and, if necessary, you will be able to modify it with a few mouse clicks from the same place. All commands that can be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via 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 package deal you have chosen includes this function by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and educational videos about the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can carry out alongside several examples to provide you with a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely through any FTP application that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to control your content irrespective of which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, as all of our packages come with this function by default. You will not have to add or allow anything manually - as soon as your hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you'll be able to connect and start working on your websites or any software which you want to set up and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from the other accounts on the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You'll be able to install any app you require and which shall run on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
