SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH due to the better security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access could be allowed with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud hosting service that you have picked provides this function as standard. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You'll find all the info that you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as detailed Help articles where 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 could be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of mouse 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 you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you will be able to include it from the hosting Control Panel if required - even just for the current month. Either way, you could activate and de-activate the feature with one click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you may type the password that you would like to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you may also change it as much as you need. A complete list of the commands which can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a couple of instances. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you acquire a new virtual private server from us, it'll offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The function comes by default with all packages, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up soon after you purchase it and the instant you receive the Welcome email with the login info, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can install and run any application that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
