Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited since you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux cloud web hosting services that we offer. With some of them, it's offered as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade which you can add with a few mouse clicks from your website hosting CP. You can get SSH access from the section related to it in which you can also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password which you'll use and, if necessary, you will be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same place. All the commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH irrespective of which plan you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the function is offered by default, and with others, it can be included as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll discover the needed login info within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to choose the password you'll use and if you want to, you could change it constantly with a few mouse clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands that you can use in advance, since we've listed them all along with examples of how they are used in order to accomplish a particular task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server packages which we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you have to activate. Once your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or can't do using SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
