SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH 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 web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access is offered with all cloud hosting which we offer. With some of them, it is offered as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade that you can include with a few mouse clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the information you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you shall use and, if required, you'll be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same place. 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 enabled for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you'll be able to include it easily through the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you shall find the details 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 can be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A detailed list of the commands which you can execute shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server offers include SSH access by default, so you won't need to add any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login info, you'll be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials which you have picked during the signup process. Because the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands that you could run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage pretty much everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and protected way.
