SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
When you have a shared website hosting account with our company and you would like to manage your content remotely using SSH, you could get SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not come with this feature as standard, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would want to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for your 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. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting
All our semi-dedicated server accounts offer the possibility to access and handle them using SSH. If the package you have picked includes this feature by default, you just need to activate the SSH access function through the corresponding section of the Hepsia CP. If the feature is listed as an optional upgrade, you could quickly include it using the Add Services/Upgrades link within the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll be available within a minute. We have various help articles and video lessons regarding the use of SSH commands to manage your account and an entire list of the commands that you can perform along with several examples to provide you with a better idea of what you could do. If SSH is enabled, you'll also be able to set up an SFTP connection to the account and to upload data safely using any FTP app which supports the function.
