What is SSH? How could you control a server via SSH?
Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the options are limited since you will not have root access to the web server, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting
account with our company and you'd like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature as standard, you may add it with several clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would want to use, given that it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared numerous Help articles in which you can easily find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account using SSH regardless of which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the function is included by default, while with others, it could be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll discover the necessary login details within the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to pick the password that you will use and if you would like, you may change it on a regular basis with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you may use upfront, since we have listed them all alongside examples of how they are used so as to execute a specific task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You will be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which VPS plans
you pick when you sign up, due to the fact that all of our packages come with this feature by default. You won't need to add or enable anything manually - as soon as your server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software which you want to install and run on the web server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all the other accounts in the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You could install any app you require and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
