SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and 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 will be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you would like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not offer this feature as standard, you can add it with a few clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You could also choose what password you would want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles in which you can find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you could include it from the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. In any case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with just one click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you can type the password you want to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as frequently as you want. The full list of the commands that can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few instances. An extra function after SSH access is allowed will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports such connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, since all of our packages provide this feature by default. You will not need to add or activate anything by hand - as soon as your web server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you can connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software which you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You can install any application that you need and which shall work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
