SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access is offered with all shared hosting plans we provide. With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it's an optional upgrade you can include with just a few clicks in your website hosting CP. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it where you will also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password that you'll use and, if needed, you'll be able to change it with a few clicks from the same place. All of the commands that can be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is offered as standard with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you could add it from the hosting CP if necessary - even only for the current month. In either case, you are able to activate and de-activate the feature with only one click from the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you will discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box in which you could enter the password which 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 require. A full list of the commands that can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and several instances. An extra function after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which VPS web hosting plans you pick when you sign up, as all our packages provide this function as standard. You'll not have to include or enable anything manually - the instant your server is prepared and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You shall have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts in the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You'll be able to install any app that you need and which will run on a Linux-based machine, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases quickly and easily.
