SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much 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 shall be affected. Though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

SSH access is offered with all website hosting plans which we offer you. With some of them, it is included by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade you can add with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting CP. You can get SSH access from the section related to it where you will also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password which you'll use and, if needed, you shall be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same spot. All commands that can be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article together with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you shall be able to include it without difficulty through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you will discover the information which 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.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you buy a new VPS server from us, it'll provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The feature is provided as standard with all plans, so you shall not have to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up soon after you buy it and the moment you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you may connect via the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can set up and run any application that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
