SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected info between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access may be allowed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting that you have chosen comes with this function as standard. If not, you could add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You'll discover all the details which you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, alongside comprehensive Help articles in which we've listed each of the commands which you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the exact same section at any time with several clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and control them via SSH. If the package that you have chosen includes this feature by default, you just need to activate the SSH access feature through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the function is listed as an optional upgrade, you can quickly add it through the Add Services/Upgrades link inside the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and video tutorials concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and a full list of the commands that you can carry out alongside a number of examples to offer you a better understanding of what you could do.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which Linux virtual private servers you select when you sign up, since all our packages provide this function by default. You'll not need to add or activate anything manually - as soon as your server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software that you want to set up and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you will be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You'll be able to install any application which you need and which shall work on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
