SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
SSH access may be permitted with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared web hosting which you have picked includes this function by default. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You'll discover all the information and facts which you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, along with thorough Help articles where we have listed each of the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the same section at any time with several mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely using 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
When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you'll be able to include it with ease through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also needed if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer you. A comprehensive list of the commands which you can execute shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each one is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS
You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which Linux virtual private servers you select when you sign up, since all our packages provide this feature by default. You will not have to include or allow anything manually - the minute your web server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software you want to set up and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You can install any application you need and which will run on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
