SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is established 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 instance, files may be moved or deleted, databases may 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 may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux website hosting which you have picked provides this feature as standard. If not, you may add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You will find all the info you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, as well as in depth Help articles where we have listed each of the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the exact same section at any time with several clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you could include it from the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the function with only one mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you could enter the password that you'd like 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 may also change it as much as you want. A full list of the commands that can be executed inside a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a number of instances. An extra function after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS
You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, as all of our plans include this feature by default. You won't need to include or enable anything by hand - as soon as your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you could connect and begin working on your websites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts inside the physical server, you will be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You may set up any app you require and which shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
