SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily include it via the hosting Control Panel if necessary - even just for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with one click from the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you could input the password you want to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better security, you can also change it as often as you need. A complete list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is supplied in our Knowledge Base, together with the syntax and a few examples. An extra feature after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this kind of connections.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a new virtual private server from us, it will provide full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to control everything through an SSH console. The function comes by default with all package deals, so you won't need to allow or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up shortly after you get it and the instant you get the Welcome email with the login details, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could install and run any app that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
