SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved 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 significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though 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 Cloud Web Hosting
If you have a cloud web hosting account with our company and you would like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you can easily obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not include this feature as standard, you can add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In 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 can even choose what password you would want to use, considering that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared several Help articles where you can find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you could include it through the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even just for the current month. Either way, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with only one click from the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you can input the password that you'd like to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you can also change it as much as you want. A full list of the commands that can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a number of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this type of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You will be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS hosting plans you select when you sign up, because all our plans come with this feature by default. You'll not need to add or allow anything by hand - immediately after your server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you may connect and begin working on your sites or any software you want to install and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You could install any application which you need and which shall run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
