Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited because you will not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Web Hosting
When you have a web hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely via SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature as standard, you may add it with several mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a number of Help articles in which you can find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
