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

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access could be enabled with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux hosting service you have selected offers this function by default. If not, you may include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will find all the information and facts that you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, along with detailed Help articles in which we've listed the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the same section anytime with several mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this function by default, you will be able to include it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you will find the info that you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated anytime, if required. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we provide you with. An extensive list of the commands which you can execute shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you can perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a few instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages which we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you need to activate. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
