SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much 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, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting plan that you’ve chosen through the signup process offers SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. If you have picked a different plan, the SSH access feature may be added through the Upgrades menu and it will become available right away. All the info that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to modify it anytime. All of the commands that are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH irrespective of which plan you select when you sign up. With some plans, the function is offered by default, and with others, it can be added as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it. You will discover the required login details within the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to pick the password you'll use and if you would like, you may change it regularly with a few clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands that you may use in advance, because we've listed them together with examples of how they are used so as to carry out a particular task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans which we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you should enable. As soon as your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
