SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access could be enabled with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud hosting plan that you have picked provides this feature by default. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will find all the details that you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, along with thorough Help articles in which we have listed the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the very same section at any time with a few mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files that 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 shall be able to receive SSH access to it with a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, offered with all accounts. If your package does not support this function by default, you'll be able to add it easily via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you shall discover the information 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 may be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide you with. An extensive list of the commands that you can carry out shall give you a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which VPS plans you select when you sign up, because all our packages offer this function by default. You will not have to add or allow anything by hand - as soon as your web server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you'll be able to connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You can set up any application which you need and that will run on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases fast and easy.
