SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients 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 Cloud Website Hosting
When you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't provide this feature as standard, you can easily add it with several mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would like to use, given that it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared several Help articles where you could find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
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 deal that you have chosen comes with this function by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and educational videos concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands that you can execute alongside a number of examples to offer you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely through any FTP app that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, since all of our packages provide this function by default. You won't have to include or enable anything manually - the instant your website hosting server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you could connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software which you want to install and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from all of the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you will be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You can install any application you require and which shall run on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
