SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases can 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 could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud package that you have picked comes with this function as standard. If not, you could add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You'll find all the details you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles where we've listed all the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section anytime with a few clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely via 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
All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and manage them via SSH. If the plan you have picked includes this function by default, you just need to enable the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you may quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and video tutorials about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a whole list of the commands you can perform alongside several examples to give you a better understanding of what you can do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely via any FTP app which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS
The virtual private server plans we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you must activate. Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do via SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
