SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be transferred 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 much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up 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 clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a shared web hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely using SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't include this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you want to use, given that it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles in which you could find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can include it via the hosting Control Panel if needed - even just for the current month. In any case, you can activate and de-activate the feature with just one click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you will discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you could type the password you want to use, since it doesn't have 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 which can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a number of instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed 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 Web Hosting
The virtual private server solutions we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you should enable. As soon as 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 throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot the whole server or just a certain 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.
