SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

SSH access may be allowed with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the web hosting service you have picked offers this function by default. If not, you may include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will find all the details which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, along with comprehensive Help articles in which we have listed all the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section at any time with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With some plans, the feature is provided by default, and with others, it can be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the required login information in the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can choose the password which you'll use and if you'd like, you may change it constantly with a couple of clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you may use upfront, as we have listed them together with examples of how they are used so as to execute a certain task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server offers that we offer include SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you have to activate. Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details which you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or can't do via SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux server, reboot the whole server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
