SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access may be allowed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting which you have chosen offers this function by default. If not, you can include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll find all the information you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles where we've listed each of the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to obtain SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to add it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you shall find the details that you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also needed if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer you. A thorough list of the commands that you can carry out will give you a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content no matter which Linux virtual private servers you choose when you sign up, because all of our packages include this function by default. You will not need to add or enable anything by hand - the instant your web server is ready and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login information, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts inside the physical server, you will be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You could install any application you need and which will run on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
