Find out precisely what SSH is and also just how you can control a whole server with it.
Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the alternatives are limited since you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
If you have a website hosting
account with us and you want to handle your content remotely using SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't include this feature by default, you can easily add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you would like to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a number of Help articles in which you can find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server
accounts offer the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the plan that you've chosen includes this feature by default, you just need to activate the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can perform along with a number of examples to offer you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely via any FTP app which supports the feature.
