SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could 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 may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access may be enabled with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting which you have chosen comes with this feature as standard. If not, you could include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You will find all the details you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, alongside in depth Help articles where we've listed the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the very same section at any time with several clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them through SSH. If the package that you have selected incorporates this function by default, you just have to allow the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video lessons concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands which you can perform together with several examples to give you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely through any FTP application that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS hosting plans you select when you sign up, as all of our packages offer this feature by default. You will not need to add or activate anything by hand - the minute your server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you could connect and begin working on your websites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts in the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any app you need and which shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases quickly and easily.
