Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited as you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They're all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting account with our company and you want to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't come with this feature by default, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you want to use, given that it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared numerous Help articles where you may find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server packages we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you need to enable. Once your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
