SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved 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 can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used predominantly 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 could be enabled with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the web hosting that you have selected offers this feature by default. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will discover all the details which you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside detailed Help articles where we've listed all of the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the very same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can add it via the hosting CP if needed - even only for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with one mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you may type in the password that you'd like to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you can also change it as frequently as you require. A full list of the commands that can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you need to enable. The moment your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
