Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling 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 possibilities are limited since you simply won't have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with us and you'd like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature as standard, you can easily add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also pick what password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you may find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts.

After you go to the SSH section, you'll find the info that you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, if needed. These login credentials are also essential if you would like to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. A detailed list of the commands that you can execute shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform in your account and each one is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you order a new VPS server from our company, it shall come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The feature is included by default with all package deals, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up right after you get it and the minute you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you can connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
