SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

When you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you would like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't include this feature by default, you could add it with several mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared many Help articles in which you may find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in VPS

The virtual private server packages which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you need to activate. The moment your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details which you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do through SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
