SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
When you have a cloud web hosting account with our company and you would like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not include this feature as standard, you may add it with several mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would like to use, given that it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles in which you can find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you could add it through the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with one click via the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you will discover 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 enter the password which you want to use, because it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you can also change it as much as you require. The full list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and several instances. An extra function after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
If you purchase a new virtual private server from our company, it'll offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything through an SSH console. The feature comes as standard with all plans, so you won't have to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up shortly after you get it and the instant you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any app which can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
