SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Web Hosting
If the web hosting plan which you’ve picked during the signup procedure features SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. If you've chosen a different plan, the SSH access function may be included using the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. All the details you need to connect shall be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to change it anytime. All the commands that are permitted are listed in the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the function is included by default, and with others, it could be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll discover the needed login info within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can pick the password which you'll use and if you want, you can change it regularly with several clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands that you may use in advance, as we've listed them all together with examples of how they are used to accomplish a particular task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans which we offer include SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you need to activate. The moment your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do through SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
