SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used 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 featured with all cloud website hosting we provide. With some of them, it is provided as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade you can include with just a few mouse clicks from your hosting CP. You may get SSH access through the section related to it where you can also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password which you'll use and, if needed, you will be able to modify it with a few clicks from the same location. All of the commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you'll be able to receive 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 will be able to add it easily via the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the details you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - 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 would like to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer. A thorough list of the commands which you can perform shall give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans provide this function as standard. You won't need to add or activate anything manually - immediately after your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you may connect and start working on your sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the hosting server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts inside the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You can set up any application you require and which will run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
