SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is available by default with some of our semi-dedicated server solutions, while with others you can add it via the hosting Control Panel if required - even just for the current month. Either way, you'll be able to activate and de-activate the function with only one click through the SSH section of the CP. In the same location, you will see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you may enter the password you want to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you can also change it as frequently as you need. A full list of the commands that can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few instances. An extra feature after SSH access is activated will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client that supports this sort of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server packages which we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you must activate. The minute your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details you have entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux server, reboot the whole server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
