SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can 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 and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If you have a cloud hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely through SSH, you may get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't come with this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you want to use, given that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared many Help articles in which you can easily find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

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

We have a number of help articles and video tutorials concerning the use of SSH commands to handle your account and an entire list of the commands that you can perform alongside several examples to offer you a better understanding of what you could do. If SSH is active, you will also be able to establish an SFTP connection to the account and to upload information safely and securely via any FTP app that supports the function.
