SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
When you have a shared website hosting account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely using SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't come with this feature by default, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared many Help articles in which you can find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

With some packages, the feature is included as standard, and with others, it could be added as an extra upgrade for as long as you need it. You can find the required login info within the Hepsia CP, supplied with all accounts - the host/server name, the port number and the login name. You could choose the password that you'll use and if you would like, you may change it on a regular basis with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security. You will be able to see all the commands which you can use upfront, because we've listed all of them along with examples of how they are used to accomplish a particular task.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
When you get a new VPS server from us, it will offer full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The function comes as standard with all plans, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up immediately after you purchase it and as soon as you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you could connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so you can install and run any application which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software operating on it.
