SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could 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 could be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

You can also set what password to use from the same place and you shall be able to modify it anytime. All the commands which are permitted are listed in the Help articles which we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you need to use.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is included as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily add it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even only for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the feature with a single click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same place, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you could input the password that you'd like to use, as it doesn't need 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 need. A full list of the commands which can be performed within a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few instances. An extra feature after SSH access is allowed shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server solutions we offer include SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature that you have to enable. Once your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux machine, reboot the entire server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
