Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. As the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are carried out within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access is offered with all hosting which we offer you. With some of them, it's included by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade that you can add with several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access from the section related to it where you can also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can select the password which you will use and, if required, you will be able to change it with several clicks from the same place. All the commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can include it via the hosting CP if needed - even just for the current month. In either case, you can activate and de-activate the feature with one mouse click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you may type the password you want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you can also change it as much as you want. The full list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a number of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, because all of our plans offer this function as standard. You will not need to add or allow anything by hand - the minute your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you may connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts inside the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application which you need and that shall work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases quickly and easily.
