SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much 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. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access is provided with all Linux cloud website hosting which we offer you. With some of them, it is included by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade that you can include with several mouse clicks from your website hosting CP. You may get SSH access through the section dedicated to it where you will also find the information which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password which you will use and, if necessary, you shall be able to modify it with several clicks from the same spot. All the commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted 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 Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan does not support this function by default, you shall be able to add it easily through the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information that you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated at any time, if required. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide you with.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer feature SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you need to activate. The minute your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details you have entered throughout 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 hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or can't do using SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or simply a specific 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.
