Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the possibilities are limited because you simply won't have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With 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 through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
In case you have a website hosting account with our company and you'd like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't include this feature as standard, you can add it with a few mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, 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 like to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles in which you may find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in VPS
The virtual private server solutions that we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you must enable. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do through SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
