Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited since you shall not have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option 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 via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud package you have picked comes with this function by default. If not, you could include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You'll find all the information and facts that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as detailed Help articles where we have listed all 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 very same section at any time with a couple of clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you may include it via the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. In any case, you could activate and de-activate the function with a single mouse click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you will see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you could enter the password which 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 much as you want. A full list of the commands which can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a couple of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports such connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
If you acquire a new virtual private server from us, it will provide full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The function comes by default with all plans, so you will not have to activate or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up right after you get it and the minute you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
