SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, 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, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While 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 Shared Web Hosting

SSH access could be enabled with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared web hosting that you've selected includes this function as standard. If not, you may include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You will find all the information and facts that you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles in which we've listed all the commands which you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the exact same section at any time with a couple of clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you will be able to add it from the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. Either way, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with a single mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you may type the password that you'd like to use, because it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as often as you need. The full list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a couple of instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you buy a new VPS server from us, it shall come with full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all package deals, so you won't need to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up right after you get it and the instant you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you can connect via the server’s main IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could install and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
