SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

When you have a shared hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't offer this feature as standard, you can easily 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 that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared several Help articles where you can easily find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and control them using SSH. If the package deal that you have selected comes with this function by default, you simply have to allow the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it shall be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands that you can perform alongside a number of examples to offer you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you shall also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely and securely through any FTP app which supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature which you must enable. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details which you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do using SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux server, reboot the entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
