SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the hosting plan that you've picked provides this function by default. If not, you may add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You'll discover all the information and facts that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, as well as detailed Help articles in which we have listed each of the commands which you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section anytime with several mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload will go through an encrypted 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 are able to include it from the hosting Control Panel if needed - even only for the current month. Either way, you can activate and de-activate the feature with one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you can easily input the password that you would like to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as much as you want. A complete list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a couple of instances. 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 this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans which we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature that you need to activate. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details you have entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
