Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Since the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the choices are limited because you'll not have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting that you have selected comes with this function by default. If not, you could add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You will find all the info which you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, along with detailed Help articles where we've listed all of the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
All our virtual private server solutions provide SSH access as standard, so you won't have to add any upgrades or activate anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you will be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen through the signup process. Since the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands which you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage pretty much everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and safe way.
