SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be transferred 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 can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to manage your content remotely through SSH, you may get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't include this feature by default, you could add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you can easily find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide the possibility to access and manage them using SSH. If the package that you have selected comes with this feature by default, you simply need to enable the SSH access function via the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you are able to quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia CP and it'll be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and instructional videos concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can execute along with several examples to give you a better perception of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload files securely through any FTP application that supports the feature.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages provide SSH access by default, so you will not need to add any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen throughout the signup process. Because the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you are able to work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and protected way.
