Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the alternatives are limited since you shall not have root access to the server, so you may just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
If you have a website hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't offer this feature by default, you can add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you would like to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a number of Help articles where you may find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
