SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
When you have a shared web hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you may get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't offer this feature by default, you can add it with a few mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would like to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles in which you can easily find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

With some plans, the feature is offered as standard, and with others, it could be added as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it. You'll discover the required login details in the Hepsia Control Panel, provided with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You are able to pick the password you'll use and if you want, you can change it regularly with a few mouse clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use in advance, as we've listed all of them along with examples of how they are used in order to accomplish a particular task.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, since all our plans include this feature as standard. You won't need to add or enable anything by hand - the instant your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your Internet sites or any software that you would like to install and run on the machine. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be separated from the other accounts within the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You'll be able to install any application which you need and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
