SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access may be allowed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud web hosting plan that you have chosen comes with this feature by default. If not, you could include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You will find all the information you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, along with detailed Help articles in which we've listed each of the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with a few clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH regardless of which plan you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is provided by default, while with others, it could be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the required login info within the Hepsia CP, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to select the password that you'll use and if you would like, you may change it regularly with several mouse clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use beforehand, since we have listed them all along with examples of how they are used to carry out a certain task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you purchase a new VPS server from us, it shall provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The feature comes by default with all package deals, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up shortly after you get it and the minute you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
