SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and 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 clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't offer this feature by default, you may add it with a few mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you may find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the plan you have picked includes this feature by default, you just need to allow the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and video lessons regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands which you can perform together with various examples to offer you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely and securely via any FTP application that supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you acquire a new VPS server from us, it will come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The function is provided by default with all plans, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up immediately after you order it and the instant you get the Welcome email with the login info, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you can install and run any application which can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
