SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, 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, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and a lot more. These things aren't 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. While SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux cloud website hosting services that we offer you. With some of them, it's featured as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade which you can add with a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you shall also find the information which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password that you shall use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with a few mouse clicks from the same place. All commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and manage them using SSH. If the plan you have chosen includes this feature by default, you just have to enable the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and video tutorials regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands you can execute alongside various examples to offer you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely via any FTP application that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

When you buy a new virtual private server from us, it'll offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything via an SSH console. The function comes by default with all packages, so you shall not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up immediately after you order it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions in terms of the commands that you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you can install and run any application which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
