SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting package deal which you’ve selected throughout the signup process features SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this feature with a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've selected a different plan, the SSH access feature may be included via the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. All the information you need to connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same place and you shall be able to change it whenever you want. All commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you need to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you are able to add it via the hosting CP if necessary - even just for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with just one mouse click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you could type the password which you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you may also change it as much as you require. A complete list of the commands that can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which VPS plans you choose when you sign up, as all of our packages provide this function by default. You'll not need to add or enable anything manually - as soon as your website hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software you want to install and run on the web server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all the other accounts inside the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You'll be able to set up any app which you need and that will run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
