SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may 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 could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't 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. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting account with us and you'd like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not offer this feature by default, you can easily add it with several mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would like to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you can easily find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH no matter which package you select when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is included by default, while with others, it can be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You will discover the needed login information within the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could select the password that you'll use and if you'd like, you can change it constantly with several mouse clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use in advance, because we have listed them alongside examples of how they are used in order to accomplish a particular task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature that you should enable. The moment your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin 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 e-mail as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or can't do through SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
