SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

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

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can easily include it from the hosting Control Panel if required - even only for the current month. In any case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with a single click from the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you can easily type in the password which you want to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you can also change it as much as you want. The full list of the commands that can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, as all of our packages include this function as standard. You won't have to add or enable anything by hand - immediately after your server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you may connect and start working on your sites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts inside the physical server, you will be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You may set up any application you require and that shall work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
