Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They're all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in Hosting

When you have a hosting account with our company and you would like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you can obtain SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not come with this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of mouse clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you would like to use, since it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared many Help articles where you can easily find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, 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 example.
