SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

If you have a hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely using SSH, you may get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature as standard, you may add it with several mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would want to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles in which you can find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you shall be able to add it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will find the info that you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated at any time, if needed. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files through a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer. A detailed list of the commands you can execute shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you must activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details that you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
