SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved 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 can be installed and 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 shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

When you have a shared web hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't offer this feature as standard, you could add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would want to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles where you can find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to obtain SSH access to it with simply a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, supplied with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to add it with ease via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will find the details you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, if required. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files via a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer you. A detailed list of the commands which you can perform shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each one is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, as all of our plans include this function by default. You won't have to include or enable anything manually - the minute your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you may connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software that you'd like to install and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all the other accounts in the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You can install any app that you need and that shall work on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases quickly and easily.
