Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the alternatives are limited because you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

If the cloud hosting plan which you’ve selected throughout the signup process features SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have picked a different plan, the SSH access feature may be added through the Upgrades menu and it'll become available immediately. The information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to modify it whenever you want. All commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles that we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages provide SSH access as standard, so you shall not have to include any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you will be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials which you've picked during the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands which you may run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage pretty much everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you can work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and protected way.
