Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine 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 tons of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

If not, you can add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately.

The SSH password can be modified from the very same section at any time with a few mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the plan which you have picked comes with this function by default, you just need to allow the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have various help articles and video tutorials concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can execute along with a number of examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely through any FTP app which supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you buy a new VPS server from our company, it shall offer full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The function is provided by default with all package deals, so you shall not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up immediately after you purchase it and the moment you receive the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and begin working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so you can set up and run any app which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
