SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases could 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 can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

If the shared web hosting package which you’ve chosen during the signup process provides SSH access by default, you shall be able to activate this feature with just a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. In case you have chosen a different plan, the SSH access feature can be included using the Upgrades menu and it'll become available immediately. All the info that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All of the commands which are allowed are listed in the Help articles that we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can add it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even just for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with a single click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you can easily type in the password which you want to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you could also change it as much as you need. The full list of the commands which can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few instances. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, because all of our packages come with this function by default. You won't have to include or allow anything manually - the minute your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you can connect and start working on your web sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from the other accounts in the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You can set up any application which you need and which will run on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases fast and easy.
