SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded information between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could 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 set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

When you have a website hosting account with our company and you'd like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't offer this feature as standard, you may add it with a few mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you would want to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you could find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them through SSH. If the package deal that you've selected includes this function by default, you simply need to activate the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a lot of help articles and video lessons about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can perform together with several examples to offer you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely through any FTP app that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server plans we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you have to activate. As soon as your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do via SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
