SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access may be enabled with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting that you've picked offers this feature by default. If not, you may add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You will find all the information and facts which you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, alongside detailed Help articles where we've listed all of the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the very same section anytime with a couple of clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can include it from the hosting Control Panel 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 from the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box where you can easily type in the password that you would like to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you can also change it as frequently as you need. The full list of the commands which can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server plans that we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a function which you must activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email too. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or just a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
