SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access can be permitted with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared package which you have picked offers this feature by default. If not, you may add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You'll find all the info you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, along with in depth Help articles in which we have listed all the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the same section anytime with several mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH regardless of which package you select when you sign up. With some plans, the function is included as standard, while with others, it can be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You will discover the needed login details within the Hepsia CP, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You may choose the password that you will use and if you would like, you can change it constantly with a few clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use in advance, as we've listed them all alongside examples of how they are used in order to accomplish a particular task. Once SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
You shall be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which Linux VPS web hosting packages you choose when you sign up, since all our packages offer this function as standard. You'll not have to add or activate anything manually - the minute your website hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you can connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be separated from all the other accounts within the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You may set up any app which you need and that will work on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
