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 web server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the choices are limited since you shall not have root access to the machine, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a certain 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 a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting that you've selected includes this feature as standard. If not, you could add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You'll find all the information and facts which you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we've listed the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the package deal that you've selected includes this feature by default, you just need to enable the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands that you can carry out along with several examples to offer you a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely via any FTP application that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages which we offer provide SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you have to enable. Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
