SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is created 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 instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

SSH access is available with all web hosting that we provide. With some of them, it's offered by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can add with a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section related to it where you shall also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to choose the password that you will use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with a few mouse clicks from the same spot. All the commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the plan that you've chosen includes this feature by default, you just need to allow the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have various help articles and video lessons regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands that you can carry out together with several examples to offer you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely through any FTP application which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which VPS hosting plans you select when you sign up, as all our plans provide this function as standard. You won't need to include or activate anything by hand - as soon as your website hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login info, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your websites or any software you want to install and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from all the other accounts within the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You may install any application you need and which will run on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases easily and quickly.
