SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may 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 can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access is provided with all cloud website hosting plans we provide. With some of them, it's featured by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can include with a few clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you shall also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to choose the password that you shall use and, if necessary, you'll be able to change it with a few mouse clicks from the same location. All of the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you will be able to include it effortlessly via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you'll find the info 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 can be updated anytime, if needed. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide you with. A thorough list of the commands that you can carry out shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server solutions which we offer include SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you have to enable. Once your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
