SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, 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, your options are significantly 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, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't offer this feature by default, you can easily add it with several clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you would want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you may find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're 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 like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package you have selected includes this function by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and instructional videos concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands you can perform alongside various examples to offer you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely through any FTP application which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use SSH to control your content no matter which VPS servers you select when you sign up, as all of our packages offer this feature as standard. You'll not need to add or enable anything manually - immediately after your website hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome email with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your websites or any software you want to install and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be separated from all the other accounts in the physical server, you will be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You could install any application that you need and which will work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
