SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved 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 could be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access is available with all shared hosting that we offer. With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade you can add with a couple of mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section related to it in which you shall also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password which you will use and, if necessary, you will be able to modify it with several clicks from the same place. All of the commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the plan that you've chosen incorporates this feature by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have various help articles and video lessons concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands that you can carry out alongside various examples to give you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely and securely through any FTP application which supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we offer include SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you should activate. The moment your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details that you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do using SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
