SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, 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, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much 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. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting plan which you’ve picked during the signup process comes with SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. In case you have picked a different plan, the SSH access function could be included using the Upgrades menu and it will become available immediately. All the information which you need connect shall be conveniently listed within 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 of the commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which plan you select when you sign up. With some packages, the function is offered by default, while with others, it may be added as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You will find the required login information in the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can choose the password which you'll use and if you would like, you may change it constantly with a few mouse clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands which you can use upfront, because we've listed them alongside examples of how they are used so as to carry out a specific task.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server solutions we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you have to activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or can't do using SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
