Find out just what SSH is and also just how it is possible to control a whole server with it.
Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the options are limited as you shall not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions which are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
When you have a cloud web hosting
account with our company and you would like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you may get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not come with this feature by default, you can easily add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall 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 doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared many Help articles where you can easily find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server
account with us, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you will be able to add it easily using the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information which 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 required if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer you. An extensive list of the commands that you can carry out will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each one is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts on the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You can install any app that you need and that shall work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
