SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and 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. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

If the shared website hosting package which you’ve picked through the signup procedure features SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with only a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've selected a different package, the SSH access feature may be added using the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. The information that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed in 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 spot and you will be able to change it at any time. All of the commands that are allowed are listed inside the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a 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 add it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will find the information you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - 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 required if you would like to upload files using a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer you. A thorough list of the commands that you can perform will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each is accompanied by a couple of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server offers which we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you must enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
