SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
If you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you'd like to handle your content remotely via SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not offer this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the CP, 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, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a number of Help articles where you may find each of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
