SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected information between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
In case you have a shared hosting account with our company and you would like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you may get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't include this feature by default, you may add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can even select what password you would want to use, given that it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles where you may find all the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
