Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited since you'll not have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They're all actions which are performed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the web server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

When you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you want to manage your content remotely using SSH, you could get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not include this feature by default, you may add it with a few mouse clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you would want to use, given that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles in which you may find each of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
