SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

In case you have a cloud hosting account with us and you would like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not offer this feature as standard, you can add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you would want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a lot of Help articles where you can easily find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
