SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
In case you have a cloud hosting
account with our company and you want to handle your content remotely using SSH, you can get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature as standard, you may add it with a few clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall 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 want to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared numerous Help articles in which you may find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they are used. In addition, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client like FileZilla, for example.

packages, while with others you will be able to add it through the hosting Control Panel if needed - even only for the current month.

In the same spot, you will see the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you can type in the password that you would like to use, as it doesn't have to be the same as the one you use to log into the Control Panel. For better protection, you could also change it as frequently as you require. The full list of the commands that can be performed inside a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a number of examples. An extra function after SSH access is enabled shall be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP using any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.
