SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting plan that you’ve picked through the signup procedure provides SSH access by default, you shall be able to activate this feature with just a click within your Hepsia CP. In case you have chosen a different plan, the SSH access function may be added using the Upgrades menu and it will become available at once. The information 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 spot and you shall be able to change it at any time. All the commands which are allowed are listed in the Help articles which 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 via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can easily include it via the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. In any case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with a single click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you may type in the password which you want to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as often as you need. A complete list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several instances. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, because all our packages come with this function as standard. You won't need to include or enable anything by hand - immediately after your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you can connect and start working on your websites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from all of the other accounts inside the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You may set up any application that you need and which will work on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases easily and quickly.
