SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer protected information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent through 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 could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting account with our company and you would like to handle your content remotely using SSH, you can get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't come with this feature by default, you can add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you would like to use, given that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles in which you can find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with only a 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'll be able to include it without difficulty through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll find the information 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 could be updated at any time, if required. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files through a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we provide. A detailed list of the commands that you can carry out shall give you a better idea of what tasks you can perform within your account and each one is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you purchase a new VPS server from us, it shall offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The feature comes by default with all package deals, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up shortly after you order it and as soon as you receive the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
