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

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If the cloud hosting plan that you’ve picked during the signup process comes with SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this function with only a click within your Hepsia CP. If you've chosen a different plan, the SSH access function could be added via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available straightaway. All the details which you need connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same spot and you will be able to change it whenever you want. All commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles that we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you should use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you will be able to add it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even just for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with one click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you could input the password you want to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as much as you need. The full list of the commands that can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few instances. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server offers we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you need to enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a specific 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.
