SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you could get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not offer this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you would want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles in which you can find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them through SSH. If the package deal that you've chosen comes with this feature by default, you just have to allow the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and educational videos concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a whole list of the commands you can carry out alongside numerous examples to offer you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely and securely via any FTP app which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server solutions we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature that you should enable. The moment your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or can't do using SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
