SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer protected info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved 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 can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things are not 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. Although SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

SSH access is offered with all hosting services we offer. With some of them, it is offered by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can add with just a few mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. You can get SSH access from the section related to it where you can also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password that you will use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with a few clicks from the same place. All commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can easily include it through the hosting CP if required - even only for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with just one mouse click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you can enter the password that you'd like to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you may also change it as frequently as you require. A complete list of the commands which can be performed in a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a number of examples. An extra function after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS

You will be able to use SSH to control your content no matter which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, as all our packages provide this feature as standard. You won't need to include or enable anything by hand - the instant your hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome email with the login information, you could connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software you want to set up and run on the web server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be isolated from the other accounts in the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You can install any application which you need and that will run on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases easily and quickly.
