SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

When you have a shared hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature by default, you can add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you would like to use, given that it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles in which you can find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the package deal you have chosen incorporates this feature by default, you simply need to activate the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and video tutorials concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can perform alongside several examples to give 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 data safely and securely through any FTP application that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, since all our plans come with this function as standard. You won't need to include or activate anything manually - the moment your server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your web sites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You may set up any app that you need and which shall work on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases quickly and easily.
