SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access could be permitted with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared hosting you have selected includes this feature as standard. If not, you could add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll find all the details you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, as well as thorough Help articles where we've listed all the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the same section at any time with several clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you may include it from the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even just for the current month. In either case, you can activate and de-activate the function with one mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you will see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you may input the password that you would like to use, because it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as often as you require. A full list of the commands which can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a number of examples. An extra function after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports such connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

If you get a new virtual private server from us, it shall provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything using an SSH console. The function is provided by default with all package deals, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up soon after you buy it and the moment you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you may connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you may install and run any app which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
