SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

All the commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles that we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that 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.

If the package you have selected includes this feature by default, you just need to activate the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia Control Panel. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it through the Add Services/Upgrades link in the Hepsia Control Panel and it will be available within a minute.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
If you purchase a new virtual private server from our company, it shall offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The function is included by default with all packages, so you shall not have to activate or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up soon after you order it and the moment you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software operating on it.
