SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved 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 considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients 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 forth.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared service that you have selected comes with this feature as standard. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will find all the information which you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we've listed all the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the very same section at any time with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your plan does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it effortlessly using the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the details which you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, if needed. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files through a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer. An extensive list of the commands that you can execute will offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform in your account and each one is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server offers we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you need to enable. Once your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do through SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or just a specific 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.
