SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can 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 a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

In case you have a hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't offer this feature by default, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you would want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you can easily find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you will be able to add it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even just for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with just one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you can enter the password which you want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you could also change it as often as you want. The full list of the commands which can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a couple of instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, because all our packages come with this feature as standard. You'll not have to add or activate anything manually - the minute your website hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you can connect and start working on your websites or any software that you want to set up and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts within the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You may set up any app you need and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases easily and quickly.
