SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could 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, your options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux hosting package that you've chosen comes with this function as standard. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll find all the info you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, along with detailed Help articles where we have listed the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you pick when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is offered as standard, while with others, it can be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the required login details within the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may select the password you'll use and if you want to, you could change it on a regular basis with several mouse clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use beforehand, since we have listed them together with examples of how they are used to carry out a particular task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you must activate. The moment your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
