Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They are all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server offers provide SSH access as standard, so you will not have to add any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login information, you will be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials that you've selected during the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you can run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you may work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and secure way.
