Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited because you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared web hosting service which you have selected comes with this function by default. If not, you could include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You will discover all the information and facts which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, as well as thorough Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the very same section anytime with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and handle them through SSH. If the package which you have chosen includes this function by default, you simply need to allow the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and educational videos concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands which you can carry out alongside a number of examples to provide you with a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely using any FTP app which supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
When you get a new virtual private server from us, it will offer full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The function is provided by default with all plans, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up shortly after you buy it and the moment you get the Welcome email with the login details, you can connect through the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could install and run any application which can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
