SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

SSH access is available with all Linux cloud website hosting services which we offer you. With some of them, it's offered by default, while with others it's an additional upgrade which you can add with just a few mouse clicks from your website hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access from the section related to it where you shall also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may choose the password that you will use and, if required, you will be able to change it with a few mouse clicks from the same place. All of the commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled 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 Hosting

SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you will be able to include it via the hosting CP if needed - even only for the current month. In either case, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the function with one click from the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same spot, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You shall also find a box in which you could input the password which you want to use, because it does not have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you may also change it as often as you want. A full list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a couple of examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

All our virtual private server packages include SSH access by default, so you shall not need to add any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have chosen during the signup procedure. Because the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you can run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage pretty much everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you may work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and protected way.
