SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may 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 plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
In case you have a shared website hosting account with our company and you want to manage your content remotely through SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not offer this feature by default, you can easily add it with a couple of mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can even select what password you want to use, given that it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles where you may find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server plans feature SSH access by default, so you won't need to add any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login info, you will be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials which you've selected during the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions with regards to the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage more or less everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you are able to work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and safe way.
