SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up 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 will be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud package that you've chosen comes with this feature by default. If not, you could add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You'll discover all the information that you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, alongside thorough Help articles where we have listed all of the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section at any time with several mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the plan that you've picked comes with this feature by default, you just have to activate the SSH access feature using the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a variety of help articles and educational videos about the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands you can carry out alongside several examples to provide you with a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is active, you shall also be able to create an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely using any FTP application which supports the function.
SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server packages we offer include SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you need to activate. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
