Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud website hosting service which you have picked provides this feature by default. If not, you could add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the details which you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles where we have listed the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with a few mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH irrespective of which plan you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the function is offered by default, while with others, it may be added as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll discover the needed login information in the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could pick the password which you'll use and if you want, you could change it constantly with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands you can use upfront, as we have listed them along with examples of how they are used so as to carry out a specific task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, since all of our plans include this function by default. You won't need to include or activate anything manually - immediately after your server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you could connect and begin working on your websites or any software you want to install and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts in the physical server, you will be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You may set up any application which you need and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
