SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can 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 required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

When you have a cloud web hosting account with our company and you want to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you may get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature as standard, you could add it with several mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you want to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared numerous Help articles in which you could find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is included as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you may include it from the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with one click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you will discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you can input the password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as frequently as you need. A full list of the commands that can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a number of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you obtain a new virtual private server from us, it'll provide full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The function is provided as standard with all plans, so you won't have to activate or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up shortly after you buy it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect using the server’s main IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You will 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 entire machine or any software operating on it.
