SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used primarily 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 plan that you’ve selected during the signup procedure provides SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with a click in your Hepsia CP. In case you have selected a different package, the SSH access feature could be added through the Upgrades menu and it shall become available immediately. All the information you need to connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same spot and you will be able to change it anytime. All of the commands that are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and handle them via SSH. If the package deal that you've chosen includes this function by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can perform alongside a number of examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely through any FTP application that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions include SSH access as standard, so you will not need to add any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login info, you'll be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials that you have selected throughout the signup procedure. Because the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and protected way.
