SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the higher security level. 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, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

If the shared hosting plan that you’ve chosen during the signup procedure provides SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with just a click from your Hepsia CP. In case you have chosen a different package, the SSH access feature may be added through the Upgrades menu and it shall become available instantly. All the information which you need connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to modify it anytime. All commands that are permitted are listed in the Help articles which we've prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you need to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this function by default, you will be able to add it easily using the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will find the details which 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 needed if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide you with. A thorough list of the commands you can perform will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you can perform in your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server solutions that we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you have to enable. As soon as your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Since 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 via SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
