SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred 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 can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
If you have a shared website hosting
account with us and you would like to handle your content remotely using SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not provide this feature by default, you may add it with a couple of clicks via the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, given that it does not have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared a number of Help articles in which you can easily find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, as well as examples of how they're used. In addition, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server
packages provide SSH access as standard, so you won't have to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've chosen throughout the signup process. As the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands that you may run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage pretty much everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications that you install in a fast and protected way.
