Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the choices are limited since you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
When you have a website hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't offer this feature as standard, you could add it with a few clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within 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 can also pick what password you want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles in which you can find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll 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 shall be able to add it with ease through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you shall discover the information which you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated anytime, if needed. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer. An extensive list of the commands which you can carry out shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a few instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you buy a new VPS server from us, it shall provide full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The function is provided as standard with all packages, so you won't have to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up shortly after you order it and the minute you get the Welcome email with the login details, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you may install 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 running on it.
