SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Web Hosting
If the web hosting package which you’ve picked throughout the signup procedure offers SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click in your Hepsia CP. If you've chosen a different package, the SSH access feature could be included using the Upgrades menu and it shall become available right away. All the details which you need connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All of the commands that are allowed are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax which you must use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
If you obtain a new VPS server from us, it shall come with full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to manage everything using an SSH console. The feature is included as standard with all plans, so you shall not need to allow or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up right after you purchase it and the instant you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you may connect using the server’s main IP address and begin working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
