Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a 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 a hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the possibilities are limited as you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in Web Hosting

If you have a web hosting account with our company and you would like to handle your content remotely using SSH, you can easily obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not come with this feature as standard, you may add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also select what password you want to use, as it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared many Help articles where you may find all of the commands that you'll be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
