SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, 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 choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up 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 predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
If the cloud hosting plan that you’ve picked through the signup process offers SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this feature with simply a mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've selected a different plan, the SSH access feature can be added via the Upgrades menu and it will become available straightaway. All the information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All the commands which are permitted are listed within the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with us, you will be able to obtain SSH access to it with just a click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, provided with all accounts. If your plan doesn't support this feature by default, you will be able to include it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu. When you go to the SSH section, you will discover the information that you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated anytime, if required. These login credentials are also needed if you'd like to upload files through a secure connection and you would like to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we provide you with. A complete list of the commands which you can perform will offer you a better idea of what tasks you can perform inside your account and each is accompanied by several instances of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you order a new VPS server from us, it'll come with full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all packages, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up immediately after you purchase it and the moment you receive the Welcome e mail with the login information, you can connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application which can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
