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 information between a hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing a hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're 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 will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, 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 Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux shared hosting we offer you. With some of them, it's offered as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade that you can include with several clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access through the section dedicated to it where you will also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password which you will use and, if needed, you'll be able to change it with several clicks from the same place. All commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With some packages, the function is provided as standard, while with others, it may be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the needed login info inside the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can pick the password which you'll use and if you would like, you may change it constantly with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security.

As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

All our virtual private server packages come with 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 info, you'll be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've chosen during the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions with regards to the commands which you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage just about everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and safe way.
