Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the possibilities are limited since you will not have root access to the hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions that are executed inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access may be allowed with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux shared hosting that you've picked provides this feature as standard. If not, you may include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You'll find all the info which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, along with thorough Help articles where we've listed all the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the very same section anytime with a couple of clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
