SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared website hosting which you have selected offers this feature by default. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will find all the information and facts you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as comprehensive Help articles in which we have listed each of the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password may be modified from the very same section at any time with a few clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you are able to include it from the hosting CP if necessary - even just for the current month. In either case, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with one mouse click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you could type in the password that you would like to use, because it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you could also change it as much as you require. A full list of the commands which can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated 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
The virtual private server plans we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you must enable. The moment your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you've entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
