SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could 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. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

If you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely via SSH, you can obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't provide this feature as standard, you can easily add it with a few mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can even choose what password you would like to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared numerous Help articles where you can easily find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can easily include it via the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with just one mouse click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you could enter the password that you'd like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as frequently as you need. A complete list of the commands which can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a number of instances. An extra feature after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports such connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you purchase a new VPS server from us, it shall come with full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The function comes by default with all package deals, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up shortly after you purchase it and the instant you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect via the server’s main IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
