SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you would like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't provide this feature as standard, you can easily add it with a few mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within 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 may also choose what password you want to use, considering that it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles where you may find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you will be able to include it effortlessly through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you will discover the details you need to connect to the server through 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, if needed. These login credentials are also essential if you want to upload files through a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. A comprehensive list of the commands you can execute will give you a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server solutions which we offer include SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you must 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 have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
