SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can 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 may be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
If the shared website hosting package which you’ve picked throughout the signup procedure features SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with just a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have chosen a different plan, the SSH access feature could be included using the Upgrades menu and it'll become available instantly. All the info you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to change it anytime. All the commands that are allowed are listed in the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can easily include it from the hosting Control Panel if required - even only for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with one click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you may type in the password that you'd like to use, as 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 frequently as you need. A complete list of the commands that can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS
All our virtual private server packages come with SSH access by default, so you shall not have to include any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials which you have picked during the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and secure way.
