SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things aren't 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 used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access is featured with all cloud website hosting we offer. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade you can add with just a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it where you shall also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password which you will use and, if necessary, you'll be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same location. All of the commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your preferred 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 get SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you will be able to add it easily using the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the info you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated anytime, if needed. These login credentials are also needed if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide. An extensive list of the commands you can carry out shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you could perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS
All our virtual private server packages come with SSH access by default, so you won't have to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have chosen through the signup process. Because the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands which you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage just about everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you can work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and safe way.
