SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you want to manage your content remotely using SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not come with this feature by default, you can add it with a couple of mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You could also select what password you would want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared numerous Help articles in which you can find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
