See just what SSH is and also how you are able to manage a whole server with it.
Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited because you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a shared website hosting
account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature by default, you can add it with several clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also pick what password you would want to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared numerous Help articles in which you may find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
When you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you will be able to include it without difficulty through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll find the details you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also essential if you want to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer you. A thorough list of the commands you can perform shall give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform in your account and each one is accompanied by a couple of examples of the syntax.
