SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected information between a client and a website hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
If you have a hosting account with our company and you'd like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't provide this feature by default, you can easily add it with several clicks via the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You can also choose what password you would want to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a number of Help articles where you may find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
