SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred 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 considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access is available with all Linux cloud web hosting services which we offer. With some of them, it is included by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade you can include with a couple of clicks from your website hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section related to it where you shall also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password which you will use and, if needed, you will be able to modify it with a few mouse clicks from the same place. All the commands which could be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you select when you sign up. With some plans, the function is included by default, while with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You can discover the needed login details inside the Hepsia CP, which comes with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to choose the password which you'll use and if you would like, you can change it all the time with several clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands that you may use in advance, since we've listed all of them along with examples of how they are used to execute a specific task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans which we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you have to enable. The minute your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux server, reboot the entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
