SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options 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 aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you would like to handle your content remotely using SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't provide this feature by default, you can easily add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can even choose what password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you may find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is included as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you could add it via the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even just for the current month. Either way, you can activate and de-activate the function with one mouse click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you could type the password that you would like to use, since it does not 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 much as you require. A complete list of the commands which can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports such connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you must enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
