Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited as you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up 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. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Web Hosting
SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux web hosting that you've picked offers this feature as standard. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You will find all the information and facts you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, along with comprehensive Help articles in which we've listed the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section anytime with a couple of mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you may add it from the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the function with one mouse click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you could input the password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as often as you want. A complete list of the commands which can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a couple of instances. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports such connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content no matter which Linux VPS web hosting packages you select when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans provide this feature as standard. You'll not have to add or allow anything by hand - the moment your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you can connect and start working on your sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You can install any app that you need and that will run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
