Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the choices are limited because you won't have root access to the machine, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will 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 with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux website hosting we offer you. With some of them, it's included by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade that you can add with a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you shall also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password that you will use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with several mouse clicks from the same place. All commands that may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With some packages, the feature is offered by default, while with others, it may be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall discover the required login details in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name.

SSH Telnet in VPS
The virtual private server offers which we offer feature SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature which you must enable. The moment your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do using SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
