SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could 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 may be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall 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 Web Hosting
When you have a shared web hosting account with us and you want to manage your content remotely through SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not provide this feature as standard, you may add it with several mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would like to use, given that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles where you could find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, along with examples of how they are used. Furthermore, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
SSH access is included by default with some of our semi-dedicated server packages, while with others you can easily include it through the hosting Control Panel if required - even just for the current month. In either case, you could activate and de-activate the feature with just one mouse click through the SSH section of the Control Panel. In the same location, you'll see the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform. You'll also find a box in which you could type the password that you'd like to use, because it doesn't need to be the same as the one you use to log into the CP. For better security, you can also change it as often as you require. The full list of the commands that can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, along with the syntax and a few examples. An extra function after SSH access is enabled will be the ability to connect to your hosting space via SFTP through any FTP client which supports this sort of connections.
