SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

When you have a website hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely through SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't provide this feature as standard, you could add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Inside 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 can also pick what password you want to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you could find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you can quickly add it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have various help articles and instructional videos concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a whole list of the commands that you can execute together with several examples to offer you a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information securely using any FTP application that supports the function.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages include SSH access as standard, so you will not need to add any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login info, you will be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have picked through the signup process. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage pretty much everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and protected way.
