SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access may be enabled with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud hosting plan which you have picked offers this function by default. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You will find all the information and facts that you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, along with detailed Help articles in which we have listed the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section anytime with several mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the package that you have picked includes this feature by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and instructional videos concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands which you can execute along with a number of examples to provide you with a better idea of what you can do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data securely via any FTP app which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless of which VPS hosting plans you choose when you sign up, since all our plans provide this function by default. You'll not have to add or allow anything manually - as soon as your hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect and start working on your web sites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the hosting server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You can set up any app that you need and which shall work on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
