SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients prefer 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 web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access is featured with all Linux cloud hosting we provide. With some of them, it's included as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade that you can add with a few clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you can also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password which you'll use and, if required, you'll be able to modify it with a few clicks from the same location. All commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, provided with all accounts. If your plan does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to include it without difficulty through the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you shall discover the information you need to connect to the server via a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter may be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also needed if you'd like to upload files via a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer. An extensive list of the commands that you can execute will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each one is accompanied by a number of examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

When you buy a new virtual private server from our company, it'll offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The feature is provided by default with all packages, so you will not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up shortly after you order it and the minute you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you can connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you can set up and run any application which can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
