Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the options are limited because you will not have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific 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, you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

If the shared web hosting package which you’ve picked during the signup process features SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this function with just a mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel. In case you have chosen a different package, the SSH access function could be included through the Upgrades menu and it'll become available right away. The information which you need connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same spot and you shall be able to change it anytime. All of the commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files through an SFTP connection.
