Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited since you shall not have root access to the hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

In case you have a cloud hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely via SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't offer this feature by default, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared many Help articles in which you may find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you order a new virtual private server from our company, it will provide full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The function is included as standard with all package deals, so you won't have to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up right after you purchase it and the minute you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you may connect via the server’s primary IP address and begin working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any app that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
