What is SSH? How to handle a server via SSH?
Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the alternatives are limited because you will not have root access to the machine, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are performed in 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 set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared web hosting
that you have chosen provides this function by default. If not, you may include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will discover all the information that you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles where we have listed the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be changed from the very same section at any time with a few clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
accounts provide you with the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the plan you have selected comes with this feature by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and video tutorials regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can carry out along with a number of examples to offer you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely via any FTP application that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server
solutions we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature which you should activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
