SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot 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. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

With some of them, it is provided by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade that you can add with several clicks from your hosting CP. You can get SSH access through the section related to it where you shall also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password that you'll use and, if required, you shall be able to change it with several mouse clicks from the same location. All commands that can be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you'll be able to get SSH access to it with simply a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, which comes with all accounts. If your plan does not support this feature by default, you will be able to add it effortlessly using the Upgrades menu. As soon as you go to the SSH section, you shall discover the info you need to connect to the server using a command line or a desktop app - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated at any time, if needed.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server packages that we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you have to enable. The moment your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do through SSH. You may download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
