SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access could be permitted with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared website hosting plan which you have picked offers this function by default. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will discover all the details you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside detailed Help articles where we've listed all of the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section at any time with a few mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is offered by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you are able to include it from the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. Either way, you can activate and de-activate the function with one click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you will find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you could type the password that you would like to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you can also change it as frequently as you want. A full list of the commands that can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a couple of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You will be able to use SSH to handle your content no matter which VPS plans you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all of our packages include this feature as standard. You won't need to add or enable anything manually - as soon as your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you can connect and begin working on your web sites or any software that you want to set up and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you will be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You could install any application you need and that will run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
