SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
If the cloud website hosting package which you’ve chosen during the signup process provides SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this function with simply a click within your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have picked a different package, the SSH access function may be included via the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. All the details that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same spot and you shall be able to change it at any time. All the commands that are permitted are listed in the Help articles which we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the plan you have selected incorporates this function by default, you just have to activate the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and instructional videos concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands that you can carry out alongside numerous examples to offer you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you will also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely via any FTP app which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans we offer include SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you should enable. Once your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
