SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access may be enabled with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared service which you have selected provides this function by default. If not, you can include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You'll discover all the info that you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, as well as in depth Help articles in which we've listed the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the exact same section anytime with a few mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you could add it via the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with a single click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you can easily type in the password that you'd like to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you may also change it as often as you want. A full list of the commands that can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a couple of instances. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you acquire a new VPS server from us, it shall offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything through an SSH console. The feature is included as standard with all package deals, so you shall not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up right after you buy it and the moment you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you could connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can set up and run any application which can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
