SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info 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 improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can 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 required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
If the cloud website hosting package deal which you’ve selected throughout the signup process offers SSH access as standard, you will be able to activate this feature with simply a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. In case you have selected a different plan, the SSH access function can be added through the Upgrades menu and it'll become available immediately. All the information which you need connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All of the commands which are permitted are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you can easily add it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even only for the current month. In any case, you can activate and de-activate the function with one click through 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 shall also find a box where you can easily input the password that you would like to use, because it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you could also change it as frequently as you need. A full list of the commands which can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and several examples. An extra function after SSH access is enabled will 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 Servers
When you obtain a new VPS server from our company, it will feature full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to control everything using an SSH console. The feature is provided by default with all plans, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up soon after you buy it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login details, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you may install and run any application which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
