SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the better security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can 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 could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If the cloud hosting package which you’ve selected throughout the signup procedure includes SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this feature with just a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have picked a different plan, the SSH access feature could be included using the Upgrades menu and it'll become available right away. All the information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same spot and you will be able to modify it anytime. All commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles that we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you should use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them using SSH. If the plan that you've picked incorporates this feature by default, you simply have to enable the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and educational videos concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands which you can execute alongside numerous examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely through any FTP app which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server plans that we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you have to enable. The moment your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do through SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux server, reboot the entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
