Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and don't need 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 hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting which you have picked comes with this feature by default. If not, you may include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You'll discover all the details that you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, as well as in depth Help articles where we've listed all the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the very same section at any time with a couple of clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them via SSH.

If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you can quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and educational videos concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands which you can execute together with several examples to offer you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely using any FTP app that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server solutions which we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you must activate. Once your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
