Secure Shell, commonly 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 server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited since you simply won't have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

If you have a hosting account with our company and you would like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't come with this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you want to use, given that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles in which you can easily find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server plans include SSH access as standard, so you won't have to add any upgrades or activate anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've picked throughout the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and protected way.
