SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can 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 installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If the cloud hosting package that you’ve picked through the signup procedure features SSH access by default, you shall be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click inside your Hepsia CP. If you have picked a different plan, the SSH access feature may be added via the Upgrades menu and it shall become available instantly. All the info that you need to connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same place and you shall be able to modify it anytime. All commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you should use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you can add it from the hosting Control Panel if required - even just for the current month. Either way, you can activate and de-activate the function with just one mouse click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you can easily type the password you want to use, because it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you can also change it as often as you want. The full list of the commands which can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a couple of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans which we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you need to activate. The moment your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do through SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
