Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the choices are limited since you'll not have root access to the website hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access can be allowed with a click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting plan that you have picked offers this function by default. If not, you can include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will discover all the information and facts you need inside the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as comprehensive Help articles in which we have listed all the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the exact same section at any time with a couple of clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
