SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux cloud hosting we offer. With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can include with a couple of mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. You could get SSH access from the section related to it in which you will also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can choose the password that you'll use and, if required, you will be able to change it with several mouse clicks from the same place. All commands that may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to receive SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you shall be able to include it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you'll find the info which 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 at any time, if required. These login credentials are also needed if you'd like 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 complete list of the commands that you can carry out will offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you select when you sign up, because all our plans come with this feature by default. You'll not need to add or activate anything by hand - the instant your hosting server is prepared and you receive the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from all the other accounts inside the physical server, you will be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any app you require and which will work on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases fast and easy.
