SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used largely 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

When you have a shared web hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you could get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not come with this feature by default, you could add it with a couple of mouse 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 may also pick what password you would like to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you can easily find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH regardless of which package you pick when you sign up. With some packages, the function is provided by default, and with others, it may be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the necessary login information inside the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to select the password that you will use and if you would like, you may change it constantly with several mouse clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands that you may use upfront, as we've listed them all along with examples of how they are used in order to carry out a certain task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you shall be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

If you get a new virtual private server from us, it will provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all plans, so you won't need to allow or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up right after you purchase it and the minute you receive the Welcome e mail with the login details, you could connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can set up and run any app which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
