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, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up 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 would be affected. While SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

With some of them, it's included as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade which you can include with a few mouse clicks in your website hosting CP. You can obtain SSH access from the section related to it in which you shall also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password that you'll use and, if needed, you'll be able to modify it with a few clicks from the same location. All commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

If your package does not support this function by default, you shall be able to add it easily via the Upgrades menu. Once you go to the SSH section, you'll discover the information you need to connect to the server through a command line or a desktop application - the server/host, the port number, the username and the password. The latter could be updated anytime, if necessary. These login credentials are also required if you would like to upload files via a secure connection and you wish to use SFTP, which is also part of the SSH access service that we offer.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you purchase a new VPS server from our company, it will come with full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The feature is included as standard with all plans, so you won't have to allow or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up immediately after you buy it and as soon as you get the Welcome e-mail with the login details, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. As the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you can set up and run any application that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
