SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer protected data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus 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 shall be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

SSH access is provided with all Linux shared web hosting packages which we offer. With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can add with a couple of mouse clicks in your hosting CP. You can obtain SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to choose the password which you will use and, if necessary, you shall be able to change it with several clicks from the same location. All of the commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package deal you have selected incorporates this feature by default, you simply have to activate the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you are able to quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and educational videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands you can carry out alongside several examples to give you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information securely via any FTP app that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you acquire a new virtual private server from us, it shall provide full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The function is included by default with all packages, so you won't have to activate or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server shall be set up immediately after you buy it and the minute you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you may connect using the server’s main IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application which can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
