SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH 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 example, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can 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 will be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

If the shared web hosting package deal that you’ve selected during the signup process offers SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with a click from your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've selected a different package, the SSH access feature may be included through the Upgrades menu and it'll become available straightaway. The information you need to connect shall 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 location and you will be able to change it anytime. All the commands that are permitted are listed in the Help articles which we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you need to use.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server packages include SSH access by default, so you will not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials which you've picked through the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
