SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting that you've chosen comes with this function by default. If not, you could add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You'll find all the information that you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, as well as detailed Help articles where we've listed all the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the very same section anytime with several mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to obtain SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you will be able to add it with ease via the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you will discover the details 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 could be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also essential if you would like to upload files through a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. A complete list of the commands that you can perform will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which Linux virtual private servers you select when you sign up, since all our plans offer this function by default. You won't need to include or allow anything manually - the instant your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you want to install and run on the machine. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from the other accounts on the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You may install any application you require and that shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
