SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting plan which you’ve chosen throughout the signup process provides SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this feature with a click from your Hepsia CP. If you've chosen a different plan, the SSH access feature can be added through the Upgrades menu and it shall become available instantly. All the info you need to connect shall be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same location and you shall be able to modify it at any time. All of the commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH regardless of which package you select when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is offered as standard, and with others, it could be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the required login details in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can pick the password that you will use and if you want to, you may change it on a regular basis with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use upfront, as we have listed them along with examples of how they are used to carry out a certain task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server plans include SSH access as standard, so you won't have to include any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials which you've picked during the signup process. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions with regards to the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you may work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and safe way.
