SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things are not 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. Though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access may be permitted with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared hosting plan that you have selected offers this feature as standard. If not, you may add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You will discover all the info which you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside detailed Help articles where we've listed all the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the same section at any time with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and handle them using SSH. If the package which you have picked comes with this feature by default, you just need to enable the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can carry out alongside a number of examples to offer you a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely via any FTP app that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you buy a new VPS server from us, it'll provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything using an SSH console. The feature is included as standard with all plans, so you won't need to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up immediately after you order it and the moment you get the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you can connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you can set up and run any application which can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
