SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

SSH access could be permitted with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared web hosting that you have picked includes this function by default. If not, you may add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. 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 must use, along with thorough Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands that you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server packages we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you have to enable. As soon as your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you've entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
