SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up 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 plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

If the shared website hosting plan that you’ve picked during the signup procedure offers SSH access by default, you shall be able to activate this function with a mouse click in your Hepsia CP. If you've chosen a different plan, the SSH access feature can be included via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available immediately. All the info 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 will be able to modify it whenever you want. All the commands which are permitted are listed in the Help articles that we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH regardless of which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the function is provided by default, and with others, it may be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the necessary login information inside the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to select the password that you will use and if you'd like, you may change it regularly with a couple of clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you can use beforehand, as we've listed them all together with examples of how they are used to accomplish a particular task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server plans we offer include SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you have to enable. Once your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux server, reboot the entire server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
