SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access is provided with all Linux shared hosting which we provide. With some of them, it's featured by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade which you can include with just a few clicks in your website hosting CP. You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you shall also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can choose the password that you will use and, if needed, you'll be able to change it with several mouse clicks from the same spot. All of the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH no matter which package you pick when you sign up. With some plans, the function is offered as standard, and with others, it can be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the needed login details inside the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can pick the password you'll use and if you want, you could change it on a regular basis with a couple of clicks for even better security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you can use in advance, as we've listed all of them together with examples of how they are used to perform a particular task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server solutions we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you need to enable. Once your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details which you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do using SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
