SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, 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 set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

You will be able to connect to your semi-dedicated server account through SSH regardless of which package you choose when you sign up. With some plans, the feature is offered by default, and with others, it may be included as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You shall find the required login details within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You will be able to choose the password you'll use and if you want to, you may change it all the time with a few mouse clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands that you may use beforehand, because we have listed them all along with examples of how they are used to perform a specific task. As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you will be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which VPS plans you choose when you sign up, since all of our plans include this feature as standard. You'll not need to add or allow anything by hand - the minute your website hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you can connect and start working on your sites or any software you want to install and run on the hosting server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be separated from all the other accounts on the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You could install any app that you need and that shall run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
