SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server can 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 clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

In case you have a shared hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely via SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not offer this feature as standard, you can easily add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would like to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a number of Help articles where you can find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and handle them via SSH.

If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you can quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a whole list of the commands that you can perform along with numerous examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely through any FTP app which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server offers which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you need to activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or just 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.
