SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases could 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 can be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access could be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared hosting package
you have selected includes this function by default. If not, you may include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will discover all the info that you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, along with detailed Help articles where we have listed all of the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be modified from the same section at any time with a couple of clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server
plans, while with others you are able to add it through the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. Either way, you could activate and de-activate the feature with only one mouse click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you will find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you can type in the password that you would like to use, because it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as frequently as you require. A full list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several instances. An extra feature after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this type of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server
packages come with SSH access by default, so you will not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login info, you'll be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've chosen through the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands that you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage virtually everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you may work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and secure way.
