Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by 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 machine, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via 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 web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting package that you’ve selected through the signup procedure comes with SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this function with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've chosen a different package, the SSH access function could be included via the Upgrades menu and it will become available at once. All the details which you need connect shall be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same place and you will be able to change it anytime. All of the commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, because all our packages provide this feature by default. You won't have to include or activate anything by hand - immediately after your web server is ready and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the hosting server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be isolated from the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You could install any app which you need and which shall work on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases easily and quickly.
