SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is available with all cloud hosting plans that we offer. With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade which you can include with a few mouse clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you can also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password which you'll use and, if required, you'll be able to change it with a few mouse clicks from the same spot. All of the commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the function is provided as standard, and with others, it could be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the necessary login info in the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could pick the password you'll use and if you want to, you may change it regularly with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use beforehand, as we have listed them alongside examples of how they are used in order to carry out a specific task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to control your content regardless which VPS web hosting plans you choose when you sign up, since all of our packages come with this function as standard. You'll not have to add or activate anything manually - the instant your website hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you may connect and start working on your websites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the machine. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be separated from all the other accounts within the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You can set up any app you require and that shall work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
