SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

In case you have a website hosting account with our company and you would like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you can obtain SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not include this feature by default, you may add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you can easily find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them through SSH. If the package which you have chosen includes this feature by default, you simply need to allow the SSH access function using the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the function is listed as an additional upgrade, you can quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have numerous help articles and instructional videos regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and a full list of the commands that you can carry out alongside various examples to provide you with a better perception of what you can do.

SSH Telnet in VPS

All our virtual private server plans provide SSH access as standard, so you will not have to include any upgrades or activate anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials which you've selected during the signup procedure. Because the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands which you could run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and secure way.
