SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

SSH access can be enabled with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux website hosting package which you have selected provides this feature as standard. If not, you could include it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You will find all the details you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we have listed each of the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the very same section at any time with a few mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH no matter which package you choose when you sign up. With some packages, the function is offered by default, and with others, it can be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall discover the required login info inside the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can choose the password which you'll use and if you would like, you may change it on a regular basis with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands you can use beforehand, as we've listed them all alongside examples of how they are used in order to execute a specific task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

You shall be able to use SSH to control your content irrespective of which Linux VPS hosting packages you pick when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans include this feature by default. You will not need to add or allow anything manually - immediately after your server is ready and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you could connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the hosting server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts within the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You may install any application you need and which will run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases easily and quickly.
