SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

The information you need to connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to modify it anytime. All of the commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles that we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

All our semi-dedicated server accounts provide you with the possibility to access and manage them using SSH.

If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it via the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia CP and it will be available within a minute. We have a number of help articles and instructional videos concerning the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands you can perform alongside a number of examples to offer you a better idea of what you can do.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you order a new VPS server from us, it shall feature full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The feature comes by default with all packages, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server shall be set up soon after you buy it and as soon as you receive the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any app that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
