SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly 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 required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux website hosting that we offer. With some of them, it is featured by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade that you can include with several clicks from your web hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you shall also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to choose the password which you'll use and, if required, you'll be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same spot. All the commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH irrespective of which package you select when you sign up. With some plans, the function is offered by default, and with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the needed login info within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to pick the password that you will use and if you want, you can change it all the time with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use in advance, as we have listed them all along with examples of how they are used to execute a specific task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages which we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you need to activate. Once your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
