SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

If the website hosting package deal that you’ve picked through the signup process includes SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click in your Hepsia CP. If you've chosen a different plan, the SSH access feature can be added via the Upgrades menu and it will become available instantly. All the information which you need connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same location and you shall be able to change it at any time. All the commands that are permitted are listed in the Help articles which we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily add it via the hosting Control Panel if required - even just for the current month. In either case, you can activate and de-activate the feature with just one mouse click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you may input the password which 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 could also change it as often as you require. A complete list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all of our packages offer this function as standard. You won't need to include or enable anything by hand - the instant your website hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you'll be able to connect and start working on your sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from all of the other accounts in the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You can install any app you need and which will work on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
