SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
If the cloud hosting package that you’ve selected throughout the signup process offers SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click inside your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have chosen a different plan, the SSH access function may be included via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available instantly. All the information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All of the commands that are allowed are listed in the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you may include it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even only for the current month. In either case, you can activate and de-activate the function with only one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same spot, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you could enter the password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as frequently as you want. A full list of the commands which can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a couple of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports such connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
When you obtain a new virtual private server from us, it'll come with full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything through an SSH console. The function is included by default with all plans, so you shall not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your server shall be set up right after you purchase it and the instant you get the Welcome email with the login information, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You will have full root access, so that you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
