SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed 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 will be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux shared hosting packages that we offer you. With some of them, it's included as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade which you can include with just a few mouse clicks in your hosting CP. You may get SSH access from the section related to it in which you can also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password that you'll use and, if needed, you shall be able to change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same spot. All the commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and handle them using SSH. If the package you have picked comes with this feature by default, you simply need to allow the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have various help articles and instructional videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands you can perform together with several examples to offer you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely using any FTP app which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

If you obtain a new virtual private server from us, it shall come with full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to manage everything through an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all plans, so you shall not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up immediately after you get it and the minute you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you could connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could install and run any application which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
