Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the possibilities are limited since you will not have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not need 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 hosting server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't include this feature by default, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a number of Help articles where you could find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them using SSH. If the package deal you have chosen incorporates this function by default, you just have to allow the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have various help articles and educational videos concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can perform alongside numerous examples to provide you with a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely using any FTP app that supports the feature.
