SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases could 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 could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

If the shared hosting package that you’ve chosen through the signup process comes with SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this function with only a click within your Hepsia CP. In case you have selected a different package, the SSH access function could be added through the Upgrades menu and it shall become available immediately. The information that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same location and you will be able to change it at any time. All of the commands that are permitted are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you need to use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the package deal you have chosen comes with this function by default, you simply need to activate the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and educational videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can execute along with numerous examples to give you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely using any FTP application that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

All our virtual private server plans include SSH access by default, so you shall not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you shall be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials that you've chosen during the signup process. Since the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands that you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you can work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and safe way.
