SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

SSH access may be enabled with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux web hosting you have chosen comes with this function as standard. If not, you can add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You'll discover all the details which you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles in which we have listed each of the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the very same section anytime with several mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you will be able to add it with ease using the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will find the information that you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files through a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. A detailed list of the commands you can carry out will give you a better idea of what tasks you could perform in your account and each is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages which we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you have to enable. As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do through SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
