SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encoded 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 due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is made 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 moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a shared website hosting account with our company and you want to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you could get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't offer this feature by default, you can add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared many Help articles where you could find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this feature by default, you shall be able to add it easily via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will find the info 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 at any time, when required. These login credentials are also required if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer you. A complete list of the commands you can carry out will offer you a better idea of what tasks you could perform inside your account and each is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you should activate. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details which you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll 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 will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
