Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited as you shall not have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require 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 machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

If not, you could add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You'll discover all the info which you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, as well as thorough Help articles where we have listed all of the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the exact same section anytime with a few mouse clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely 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 Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts.

As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will find the info which 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 can be updated anytime, if required. These login credentials are also required if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide. A thorough list of the commands you can execute will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you could perform in your account and each is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from all the other accounts in the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application which you need and that will run on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
