SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created 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 may 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 would be affected. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

SSH access could be enabled with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting that you've chosen provides this function as standard. If not, you could include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll discover all the information which you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, along with comprehensive Help articles in which we've listed the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the exact same section at any time with several mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely through 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 Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH regardless of which plan you select when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is provided by default, and with others, it could be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall discover the needed login info inside the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may pick the password that you'll use and if you'd like, you may change it on a regular basis with a few clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use in advance, because we've listed them all together with examples of how they are used in order to execute a certain task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you purchase a new VPS server from our company, it shall come with full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to manage everything through an SSH console. The function is provided by default with all packages, so you shall not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up shortly after you get it and the instant you receive the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect using the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
