SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web 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 can be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

When you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you may get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature by default, you can add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would like to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you can find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to get SSH access to it with just a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this feature by default, you shall be able to include it with ease via the Upgrades menu. After you go to the SSH section, you will discover the information 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 can be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also required if you'd like to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer. A detailed list of the commands you can execute shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you can perform inside your account and each one is accompanied by a few instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you obtain a new VPS server from us, it'll come with full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The feature is included as standard with all plans, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server shall be set up shortly after you purchase it and the instant you get the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect via the server’s main IP address and begin working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app which can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
