SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can 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 considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting
you have selected comes with this feature as standard. If not, you may include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it instantly. You will discover all the information and facts that you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we have listed the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section at any time with a few clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is available as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, while with others you can add it via the hosting Control Panel if required - even only for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with only one mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you may input the password which you want to use, because it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as much as you need. A complete list of the commands which can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a number of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
