Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the alternatives are limited because you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions which are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux cloud hosting packages that we offer. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can include with several clicks in your web hosting CP. You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it where you will also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password which you will use and, if needed, you will be able to change it with several clicks from the same place. All of the commands which can be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the plan that you have chosen comes with this feature by default, you simply need to allow the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and instructional videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can perform alongside several examples to provide you with a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely via any FTP app which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You shall be able to use SSH to control your content irrespective of which Linux VPS hosting packages you choose when you sign up, as all our packages provide this function as standard. You will not need to include or allow anything manually - the minute your website hosting server is prepared and you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you could connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the web server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be isolated from all of the other accounts within the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You could install any app you need and which will work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
