Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the alternatives are limited because you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you may just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They're all actions which are executed in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting

When you have a cloud web hosting account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely through SSH, you may obtain SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't come with this feature by default, you can easily add it with several clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can even select what password you would like to use, considering that it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared many Help articles where you could find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Also, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.
