SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
SSH access can be enabled with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux hosting which you have selected offers this function by default. If not, you can add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You'll find all the info that you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, as well as in depth Help articles where we've listed all of the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You'll be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account using SSH regardless of which package you choose when you sign up. With some packages, the function is provided as standard, and with others, it can be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall discover the required login information within the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to choose the password that you'll use and if you would like, you could change it on a regular basis with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You'll be able to see all the commands which you can use beforehand, since we've listed all of them alongside examples of how they are used to accomplish a particular task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is enabled, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS
All our virtual private server plans come with SSH access as standard, so you shall not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials which you've chosen throughout the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and protected way.
