SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and 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 will be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily 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 our company and you would like to handle your content remotely using SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature as standard, you may add it with a few mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you would want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you may find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package you have picked comes with this feature by default, you simply need to allow the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and educational videos concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can perform along with a number of examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely through any FTP application that supports the feature.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server solutions which we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you have to enable. The minute your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or can't do via SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
