SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

In case you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you'd like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't offer this feature as standard, you can add it with several mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You can also pick what password you want to use, given that it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a number of Help articles where you could find each of 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 will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

Your hosting server shall be set up immediately after you purchase it and as soon as you get the Welcome e mail with the login info, you could connect via the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions regarding the commands you can use. You will have full root access, so you can install and run any app which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
