SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded information between a client and a hosting server, which makes 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 created and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If the cloud website hosting package that you’ve selected during the signup procedure includes SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this function with a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have selected a different plan, the SSH access function can be added through the Upgrades menu and it will become available right away. All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same spot and you shall be able to modify it anytime. All of the commands that are allowed are listed in the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you can easily include it through the hosting Control Panel if required - even only for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the function with a single click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you could enter 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 frequently as you need. The full list of the commands which can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS plans you choose when you sign up, as all of our packages provide this feature as standard. You won't need to add or activate anything manually - the minute your hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you'll be able to connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software that you want to install and run on the web server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts inside the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You'll be able to install any application that you need and that will run on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases quickly and easily.
