SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
If the cloud hosting plan which you’ve picked throughout the signup process offers SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with simply a mouse click from your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have selected a different package, the SSH access function could be added via the Upgrades menu and it shall become available at once. All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same location and you shall be able to change it anytime. All of the commands that are permitted are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is included as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily include it from the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even just for the current month. In any case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with one mouse click from the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you may type in the password that you'd like to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you can also change it as often as you need. 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 several examples. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports such connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use SSH to control your content regardless which VPS web hosting plans you choose when you sign up, as all of our plans provide this feature as standard. You'll not need to include or enable anything by hand - the minute your hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the machine. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from the other accounts inside the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You could install any app which you need and which shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases easily and quickly.
