Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited since you shall not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option 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 use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is featured with all cloud hosting that we offer you. With some of them, it's offered by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can add with a couple of mouse clicks from your hosting CP. You can get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may pick the password which you will use and, if necessary, you shall be able to modify it with a few clicks from the same location. All commands that can be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

With some plans, the feature is offered as standard, and with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the needed login info inside the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to pick the password which you'll use and if you want, you may change it regularly with a couple of mouse clicks for even higher security.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, since all our plans come with this feature as standard. You won't need to add or activate anything by hand - the moment your web server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you may connect and begin working on your websites or any software you want to set up and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you will be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You can set up any app you need and which will run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
