Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by 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 website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular 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 number of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access is available with all shared website hosting plans that we offer you. With some of them, it is provided as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can include with just a few clicks in your web hosting CP. You can get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may pick the password which you shall use and, if needed, you shall be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same spot. All the commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the package which you have picked incorporates this function by default, you just have to enable the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you can quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a whole list of the commands that you can perform alongside various examples to give you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely through any FTP application which supports the function.
