Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. As the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
In case you have a hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you can easily obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't come with this feature by default, you can add it with several clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside 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 can even select what password you would like to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared many Help articles where you could find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in VPS
The virtual private server plans we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you should enable. As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details that you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
