SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access is provided with all Linux hosting which we offer. With some of them, it is offered by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade which you can add with a couple of clicks from your website hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section related to it where you shall also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to select the password that you'll use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with several clicks from the same spot. All the commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

SSH access is provided by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you are able to include it via the hosting CP if required - even just for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with only one mouse click via the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you can type in the password which you want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you could also change it as often as you want. A full list of the commands which can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You'll be able to use SSH to manage your content regardless which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans offer this feature by default. You won't have to include or enable anything manually - as soon as your web server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you may connect and begin working on your web sites or any software which you want to install and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts inside the physical server, you will be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You could install any app you require and which shall work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases efficiently.
