SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up 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 shall be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

In case you have a shared website hosting account with us and you'd like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you could get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not offer this feature as standard, you could add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside 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 can also choose what password you would like to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles in which you may 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 allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH no matter which package you pick when you sign up. With some packages, the feature is provided by default, and with others, it can be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You will discover the required login info within the Hepsia Control Panel, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You can select the password you'll use and if you want to, you could change it all the time with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands that you can use beforehand, because we've listed all of them alongside examples of how they are used so as to accomplish a certain task. As soon as 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

All our virtual private server packages provide SSH access by default, so you will not need to include any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you will be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials which you've picked throughout the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage pretty much everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and risk-free way.
