SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux cloud packages we offer. With some of them, it's included by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can include with a couple of clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you will also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may choose the password which you shall use and, if necessary, you'll be able to change it with a few mouse clicks from the same location. All commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan does not support this feature by default, you shall be able to include it easily through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information which 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 could be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files through a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. A detailed list of the commands that you can carry out will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

When you order a new virtual private server from us, it'll 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 by default with all plans, so you will not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up soon after you get it and the minute you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you can connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
