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. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited because you won't have root access to the web server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you would like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you may receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not provide this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of clicks from the Upgrades menu. In 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 pick what password you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you may find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which Linux virtual private servers you select when you sign up, because all of our packages include this function as standard. You won't need to include or activate anything manually - as soon as your web server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you can connect and start working on your sites or any software that you want to install and run on the server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be separated from all of the other accounts within the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You may set up any application which you need and that will work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
