SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting you have picked provides this function by default. If not, you can add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will find all the information which you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles in which we have listed all of the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section anytime with a couple of mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and manage them through SSH. If the package you have chosen incorporates this feature by default, you simply need to activate the SSH access feature via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you may quickly add it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands you can execute alongside various examples to offer you a better perception of what you can do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files safely through any FTP app which supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which VPS servers you select when you sign up, because all our plans come with this feature as standard. You will not have to add or activate anything by hand - immediately after your web server is prepared and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you could connect and begin working on your web 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 due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from all the other accounts within the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You'll be able to set up any application you require and which will run on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
