SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could 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 considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and 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. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
If the cloud website hosting package deal that you’ve chosen during the signup procedure features SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this function with only a click within your Hepsia CP. If you've picked a different package, the SSH access feature could be included via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available instantly. The information you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to modify it whenever you want. All of the commands that are allowed are listed in the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is offered by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you may add it via the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. Either way, you could activate and de-activate the function with just one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you will see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you may type in the password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you can also change it as much as you want. A full list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server offers that we offer include SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you have to activate. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details that you've entered throughout the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do through SSH. You are able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
