SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access is offered with all cloud web hosting we provide. With some of them, it is offered as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can add with several clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may choose the password which you shall use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same place. All commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this function by default, you shall be able to add it effortlessly through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you'll find the info which you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. A complete list of the commands you can perform shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server solutions we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you have to enable. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical 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 will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or simply a particular 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.
