SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the enhanced security level. 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 may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall 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 forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access is offered with all Linux shared hosting which we offer. With some of them, it is provided as standard, while with others it's an additional upgrade which you can include with several mouse clicks in your hosting CP. You can obtain SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you will also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password that you will use and, if required, you'll be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same place. All commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled 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
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the package deal which you have chosen comes with this function by default, you just need to allow the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can execute along with various examples to offer you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information securely via any FTP application that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server offers include SSH access by default, so you will not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials which you've selected during the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage just about everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you may work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and risk-free way.
