SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
When you have a hosting account with our company and you would like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature as standard, you can add it with a few clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would like to use, considering that it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared several Help articles where you can find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you may include it through the hosting Control Panel if required - even only for the current month. Either way, you can activate and de-activate the function with one mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you will discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you can easily input the password which 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 security, you may also change it as much as you want. The full list of the commands that can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS web hosting plans you choose when you sign up, as all our packages provide this function as standard. You will not need to include or allow anything by hand - the moment your web server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from the other accounts in the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You may install any app which you need and that shall work on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
