Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a web server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not 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 Shared Website Hosting

SSH access is provided with all shared website hosting we offer you. With some of them, it is provided by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade that you can add with a few clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access through the section related to it in which you will also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may select the password that you shall use and, if required, you'll be able to change it with a couple of clicks from the same place. All of the commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH no matter which package you choose when you sign up. With some packages, the function is provided by default, while with others, it may be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the required login information in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to choose the password you'll use and if you want to, you may change it constantly with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use in advance, as we've listed them all together with examples of how they are used so as to execute a certain task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to control your content no matter which VPS web hosting plans you select when you sign up, since all of our packages offer this feature by default. You will not need to add or activate anything by hand - immediately after your website hosting server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software that you want to set up and run on the hosting server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You may install any app which you need and that shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
