SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud web hosting plan that you have chosen includes this function by default. If not, you could add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You will discover all the info you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, along with comprehensive Help articles where we have listed all the commands which you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the exact same section at any time with a few clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily include it through the hosting CP if needed - even just for the current month. Either way, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with just one click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you could type the password you want to use, since it doesn't 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 much as you want. A complete list of the commands that can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few instances. An extra function after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server offers which we offer include SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you should activate. Once your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do using SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
