SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you'd like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not provide this feature as standard, you could add it with a few clicks via the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you would want to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you may find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they're used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
