SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated 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 could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

The SSH password could be modified from the same section anytime with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely through an FTP client too.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to obtain SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, which comes with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this function by default, you shall be able to add it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you will find the info that you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, if required. These login credentials are also required if you would like to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service which we offer. An extensive list of the commands that you can carry out will offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform inside your account and each is accompanied by a couple of instances of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You will be able to use SSH to handle your content no matter which Linux VPS packages you select when you sign up, because all our plans include this function as standard. You'll not need to include or activate anything by hand - the instant your web server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you may connect and start working on your sites or any software that you would like to install and run on the hosting server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You may set up any app you need and that shall run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
