Find out what SSH is and just how you may manage an entire server by using it.
Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the choices are limited since you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are performed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Web Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux web hosting package
that you have selected includes this feature by default. If not, you could include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll find all the information you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as thorough Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the very same section at any time with several clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server
account via SSH regardless of which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided by default, and with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find 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 could select the password you'll use and if you'd like, you can change it all the time with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands that you can use upfront, since we've listed all of them together with examples of how they are used to carry out a specific task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
