Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the choices are limited because you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you could just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
When you have a cloud hosting account with us and you want to handle your content remotely using SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not come with this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would like to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared several Help articles in which you could find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
