SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

In case you have a web hosting account with our company and you'd like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you can get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't come with this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, given that it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared several Help articles in which you may find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

When you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with a mouse 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 shall be able to include it without difficulty via the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the information which you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter can be updated at any time, if necessary. These login credentials are also needed if you would like to upload files using a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer you. A thorough list of the commands which you can execute will provide you with a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each is accompanied by a few examples of the syntax.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server offers include SSH access by default, so you won't have to include any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have chosen through the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions with regards to the commands that you can run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage virtually everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and risk-free way.
