SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

If the cloud web hosting plan which you’ve picked throughout the signup procedure provides SSH access by default, you shall be able to activate this function with just a click from your Hepsia CP. In case you have picked a different package, the SSH access function could be included through the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. All the details which you need connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All the commands that are allowed are listed within the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you need to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you could include it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even only for the current month. Either way, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with one mouse click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you may enter the password which you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you could also change it as frequently as you want. The full list of the commands which can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which VPS web hosting plans you select when you sign up, as all of our packages offer this feature by default. You won't have to include or enable anything manually - immediately after your server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your websites or any software which 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 isolated from the other accounts on the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You can set up any app which you need and which will work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
