SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH due to the better level of security. 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 could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't 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. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access could be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the hosting which you have picked provides this function as standard. If not, you may add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You'll find all the information which you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, as well as detailed Help articles where we have listed the commands that you can use in 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 several mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get SSH access to it with a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this feature by default, you'll be able to add it effortlessly using the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will discover the details that you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files through a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A detailed list of the commands that you can perform shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a few instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you need to activate. Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do using SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux server, reboot the entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
