SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may 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 a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
If the cloud website hosting package deal that you’ve chosen through the signup process offers SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this feature with a mouse click in your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have picked a different plan, the SSH access function can be added through the Upgrades menu and it shall become available immediately. The information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to change it at any time. All of the commands that are allowed are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you have to 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
SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can include it through the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with just one mouse click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you may type the password you want to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you could also change it as much as you require. A complete list of the commands that can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few examples. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports such connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, as all our plans offer this function as standard. You'll not have to add or allow anything by hand - immediately after your hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login info, you may connect and begin working on your web sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the machine. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all the other accounts on the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You may set up any application which you need and which shall work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
