SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can 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, your options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
If the hosting package deal that you’ve picked during the signup process features SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have selected a different package, the SSH access function can be added using the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. All the information you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same spot and you will be able to change it at any time. All of the commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles which we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you shall be able to receive SSH access to it with only a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, supplied with all accounts. If your package does not support this function by default, you will be able to add it effortlessly using the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you will discover the details that you need to connect to the server via 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 necessary. These login credentials are also required if you would like to upload files through a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide. A complete list of the commands that you can execute shall offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform in your account and each is accompanied by several examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you acquire a new VPS server from our company, it will offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to control everything via an SSH console. The feature is provided by default with all packages, so you shall not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up shortly after you purchase it and as soon as you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect using the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
