SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered 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, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed 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 shall be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

In case you have a shared web hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't include this feature by default, you could add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can even select what password you want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you could find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you pick when you sign up. With some packages, the function is offered by default, and with others, it can be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the needed login details within the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could select the password which you'll use and if you want to, you can change it on a regular basis with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands which you can use in advance, as we've listed them along with examples of how they are used in order to accomplish a particular task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, due to the fact that all of our plans include this feature by default. You'll not need to include or enable anything by hand - immediately after your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you could connect and start working on your web sites or any software you want to set up and run on the web server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You can set up any application you require and which shall work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
