SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up 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 may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
SSH access can be enabled with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux hosting you have selected offers this function by default. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You will find all the information you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, alongside thorough Help articles where we've listed all of the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section anytime with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is offered by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can add it from the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the function with only one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you could type the password which you want to use, because it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you can also change it as often as you require. A full list of the commands that can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server packages that we offer provide SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you have to enable. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
