SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed 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 shall be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

In case you have a website hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely via SSH, you can get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't include this feature as standard, you could add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also pick what password you want to use, given that it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles where you may find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is provided as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you will be able to include it through the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you will find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you could enter the password that you'd like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you may also change it as much as you need. A complete list of the commands which can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a number of instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this type of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, since all our packages provide this function by default. You will not need to include or activate anything manually - the instant your web server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software which you want to install and run on the hosting server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from the other accounts on the physical server, you will be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You could set up any app you require and that shall work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases fast and easy.
