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

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is offered with all cloud hosting which we offer. With some of them, it's offered by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade which you can include with several clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you shall also find the info which 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 change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same spot. All of the commands that can be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article together with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite 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 receive SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you shall be able to include it easily via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you shall find the info 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 can be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also needed if you would like to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you acquire a new virtual private server from us, it'll feature full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The function is included by default with all packages, so you shall not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up shortly after you buy it and the moment you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, 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 isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
