Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
If the hosting package deal which you’ve selected throughout the signup procedure comes with SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this function with a click inside your Hepsia CP. If you've picked a different plan, the SSH access function may be included using the Upgrades menu and it shall become available right away. All the info you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to modify it anytime. All of the commands which are permitted are listed within the Help articles that we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you have to 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 Semi-dedicated Hosting

With some plans, the function is offered by default, and with others, it may be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You will find the required login info within the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could pick the password that you'll use and if you would like, you may change it constantly with a few clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use beforehand, since we have listed them alongside examples of how they are used in order to accomplish a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
If you get a new virtual private server from us, it shall feature full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything using an SSH console. The function is provided as standard with all package deals, so you won't need to enable or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up shortly after you purchase it and the minute you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you can connect via the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you can set up and run any application that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
