SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could 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 clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access can be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting service that you have chosen includes this function by default. If not, you could include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will discover all the information and facts that you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as detailed Help articles in which we've listed each of the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of 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, each of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is included as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you could include it through the hosting CP if necessary - even just for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the function with a single mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you could enter the password you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as often as you need. A complete list of the commands which can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is provided 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 using any FTP client which supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, because all of our plans provide this function by default. You won't have to add or allow anything manually - the instant your web server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you could connect and start working on your websites or any software which you want to install and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You could install any application that you need and which shall work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases fast and easy.
