SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up 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 could be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly 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 could get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't provide this feature by default, you could add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall 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 want to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared several Help articles where you can easily find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you shall be able to obtain SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your package does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to add it without difficulty through the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you will find the details that you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also essential if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide you with. A complete list of the commands you can carry out will give you a better idea of what tasks you could perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you order a new VPS server from our company, it shall feature full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The feature is provided as standard with all plans, so you won't have to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up shortly after you buy it and the moment you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
