Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the choices are limited as you will not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install 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, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the package deal which you have chosen comes with this feature by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials about the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands you can execute together with several examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will 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

The VPS server packages we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature that you should enable. The moment your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or can't do via SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
