Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the options are limited as you won't have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server 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 OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access is offered with all Linux shared website hosting packages which we offer you. With some of them, it's included by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade that you can add with several clicks in your web hosting CP. You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it where you can also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password that you'll use and, if required, you shall be able to change it with a few clicks from the same place. All commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed inside 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
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your package does not support this function by default, you'll be able to include it easily via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the information which you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also needed if you would like to upload files through a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A complete list of the commands that you can execute shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.
