SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

If the shared web hosting package deal that you’ve chosen through the signup procedure offers SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia CP. If you've picked a different package, the SSH access feature could be added using the Upgrades menu and it shall become available instantly. The information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed in 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 spot and you shall be able to modify it whenever you want. All of the commands which are permitted are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is offered by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you may add it from the hosting CP if needed - even only for the current month. In either case, you can activate and de-activate the feature with a single click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you may enter the password that you'd like to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you could also change it as much as you need. A full list of the commands which can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra feature after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions we offer include SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature which you need to enable. The minute your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
