Find out just what SSH is and just how you may control a whole server by using it.
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients 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 forth.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access may be permitted with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting package
that you have chosen includes this feature as standard. If not, you may add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You will find all the info you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles in which we have listed the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the same section anytime with a few clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
SSH access is offered by default with some of our semi-dedicated server
solutions, while with others you are able to add it from the hosting CP if necessary - even just for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the function with only one click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box where you can type in the password you want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you could also change it as frequently as you need. A full list of the commands that can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few instances. An extra feature after SSH access is activated shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this type of connections.
