SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server plans, while with others you are able to add it via the hosting CP if needed - even just for the current month. In any case, you are able to activate and de-activate the function with one mouse click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same place, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You will also find a box where you can easily type the password which you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better protection, you may also change it as often as you want. The full list of the commands which can be executed in a semi-dedicated account is provided in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a number of instances. An extra feature after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this kind of connections.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans include SSH access as standard, so you won't need to add any upgrades or enable anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login information, you shall be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials which you've selected throughout the signup process. Since the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands that you can run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage virtually everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you are able to work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and secure way.
