SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected information 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 improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may 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 can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
In case you have a shared web hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely through SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't come with this feature by default, you could add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can even pick what password you want to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you can easily find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily add it via the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even only for the current month. Either way, you can activate and de-activate the function with a single click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you can easily enter the password you want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you could also change it as often as you want. A full list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a number of instances. An extra function after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
When you purchase a new virtual private server from our company, it'll offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The feature is provided as standard with all packages, so you will not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up shortly after you purchase it and as soon as you receive the Welcome e mail with the login info, you can connect via the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you may set up and run any application that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
