SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If the cloud hosting plan that you’ve picked during the signup process features SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this function with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have selected a different package, the SSH access feature could be included through the Upgrades menu and it'll become available instantly. The information which you need connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same place and you shall be able to change it whenever you want. All the commands that are permitted are listed inside the Help articles that we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the package deal which you have chosen includes this function by default, you just have to activate the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and educational videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands you can execute alongside numerous examples to give you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely and securely using any FTP application which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server plans that we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you should activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do through SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
