SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up 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 can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux cloud hosting which we offer you. With some of them, it's featured by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade that you can add with just a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it where you will also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to pick the password which you will use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with several clicks from the same spot. All commands which can be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

With some plans, the feature is provided as standard, while with others, it may be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the needed login info in the Hepsia Control Panel, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to select the password you'll use and if you'd like, you can change it on a regular basis with a few mouse clicks for even better security.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you order a new VPS server from our company, it will come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The function comes by default with all package deals, so you won't need to enable or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up soon after you get it and the moment you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you may install and run any application which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
