SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can include with a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section related to it where you shall also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to choose the password that you'll use and, if required, you shall be able to modify it with a few clicks from the same place. All the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you will be able to include it without difficulty 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 may be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also needed if you'd like to upload files through a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. A complete list of the commands which you can perform will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each one is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

When you acquire a new virtual private server from our company, it will offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The feature comes by default with all package deals, so you shall not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up soon after you order it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you can connect using the server’s main IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you may install and run any app that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
