SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things are not 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. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud hosting service that you've selected provides this feature as standard. If not, you can include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You will find all the information and facts that you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, along with in depth Help articles where we have listed all the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the very same section at any time with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
You shall be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account via SSH irrespective of which plan you select when you sign up. With some plans, the function is provided by default, while with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll find the required login info within the Hepsia Control Panel, included with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to select the password that you will use and if you want, you can change it all the time with several mouse clicks for even higher security. You will be able to see all the commands that you may use upfront, as we have listed them alongside examples of how they are used in order to perform a certain task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you purchase a new VPS server from us, it'll provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything via an SSH console. The function is included by default with all plans, so you will not have to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server shall be set up right after you buy it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect via the server’s main IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you can set up and run any app that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
