SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely using SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not provide this feature by default, you can add it with several mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you may find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them through SSH.

If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it shall be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and educational videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands which you can carry out together with numerous examples to give you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is active, you'll also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely and securely through any FTP app that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which Linux VPS web hosting packages you choose when you sign up, as all our plans include this function as standard. You won't have to include or allow anything manually - the moment your hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you can connect and start working on your websites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be separated from all of the other accounts on the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You can set up any app that you need and that shall work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
