SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access could be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting you have selected offers this function by default. If not, you may add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You'll discover all the information and facts that you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside detailed Help articles in which we've listed each of the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the very same section anytime with a few clicks. As long as 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 you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You shall be able to use SSH to control your content no matter which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, since all of our plans provide this function by default. You won't need to add or allow anything manually - the minute your website hosting server is ready and you receive the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you may connect and begin working on your websites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from all the other accounts inside the physical hosting server, you shall be able to do anything you would like with no restrictions. You can install any app which you need and that will work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
