SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a shared web hosting account with our company and you want to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature by default, you can add it with several clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you would want to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared several Help articles where you can easily find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you will be able to include it from the hosting Control Panel if needed - even only for the current month. Either way, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with one mouse click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you will find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you can easily input the password which you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as often as you require. A complete list of the commands which can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a couple of instances. An extra feature after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server solutions provide SSH access as standard, so you won't have to include any upgrades or activate anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login info, you'll be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have picked during the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage virtually everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you may work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and safe way.
