What precisely is SSH? How could you handle a server over SSH?
Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the possibilities are limited because you simply won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions that are performed in 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 hosting server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
When you have a shared hosting
account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not come with this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would want to use, considering that it doesn't 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, plus examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server
packages come with SSH access by default, so you shall not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've picked through the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions with regards to the commands which you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you can work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and safe way.
