Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited as you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up 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, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not provide this feature by default, you can easily add it with a few clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you may find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts.

Once you go to the SSH section, you will find the details you need to connect to the server using 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 would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. A thorough list of the commands which you can perform will give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each is accompanied by a couple of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server offers include SSH access as standard, so you will not need to add any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login info, you will be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials that you've chosen through the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands that you may run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage virtually everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you may work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and risk-free way.
