SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be moved 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 could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
When you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you want to manage your content remotely via SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't offer this feature as standard, you can add it with several mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared many Help articles where you can find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to get SSH access to it with a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this function by default, you shall be able to include it effortlessly using the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you shall find the information which 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 could be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer you. A detailed list of the commands which you can execute shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform in your account and each one is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server plans which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you must enable. As soon as your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do via SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
