Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They're all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
SSH access could be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the hosting which you have picked comes with this function as standard. If not, you may include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will discover all the information you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, along with detailed Help articles where we've listed the commands which you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section anytime with several clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to get SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your package does not support this function by default, you shall be able to include it easily using the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information which you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A comprehensive list of the commands that you can carry out shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you get a new VPS server from our company, it will feature full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything via an SSH console. The function is included as standard with all package deals, so you shall not have to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up shortly after you get it and the moment you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you could connect using the server’s main IP address and begin working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
