SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for 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, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
SSH access is featured with all shared web hosting plans which we offer. With some of them, it is featured by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade which you can add with several mouse clicks from your hosting CP. You could 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 that you shall use and, if required, you shall be able to change it with a couple of clicks from the same location. All commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and manage them using SSH. If the package you have picked comes with this feature by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you could quickly add 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 video lessons concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can carry out alongside a number of examples to give you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely through any FTP application that supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you get 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 using an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all plans, so you won't need to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up shortly after you purchase it and the moment you receive the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands that you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could install and run any app that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
