SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

If the website hosting package which you’ve selected through the signup procedure provides SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with just a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have selected a different package, the SSH access function can be added using the Upgrades menu and it shall become available instantly. All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same spot and you will be able to modify it whenever you want. All of the commands that are allowed are listed inside the Help articles which we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you should use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with only a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you will be able to add it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will find the details which you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated anytime, when required. These login credentials are also needed if you'd like to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer you. A comprehensive list of the commands which you can perform shall provide you with a better idea of what tasks you can perform in your account and each one is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless which VPS servers you select when you sign up, because all our plans come with this function as standard. You will not need to include or activate anything by hand - as soon as your website hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you may connect and begin working on your sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from all the other accounts inside the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You could set up any app you require and that shall work on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases quickly and easily.
