SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is created 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 can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though 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 Hosting

When you have a shared hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't come with this feature as standard, you can easily add it with several clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would like to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you may find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

You will be able to select the password that you will use and if you want, you can change it regularly with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use in advance, because we've listed all of them alongside examples of how they are used in order to perform a certain task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server offers we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature that you should enable. Once your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do via SSH. You can download, set up 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.
