SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

With some of them, it is provided as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade you can include with a couple of clicks in your web hosting CP. You could get SSH access from the section related to it in which you shall also find the information which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may pick the password which you'll use and, if needed, you will be able to change it with a few mouse clicks from the same location. All the commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you have a semi-dedicated server account with our company, you will be able to receive SSH access to it with simply a mouse click from the corresponding section of the Hepsia hosting CP, offered with all accounts. If your package doesn't support this function by default, you'll be able to include it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you will discover the information which 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 can be updated at any time, when required. These login credentials are also required if you want to upload files using a secure connection and you want to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service we offer you. A comprehensive list of the commands you can execute will offer you a better idea of what tasks you may perform within your account and each is accompanied by a couple of examples of the syntax.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server packages provide SSH access by default, so you won't need to include any upgrades or activate anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials which you have selected during the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands that you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and risk-free way.
