SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting package which you’ve chosen during the signup process offers SSH access as standard, you'll be able to activate this function with only a mouse click in your Hepsia CP. If you have chosen a different package, the SSH access feature may be included via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available straightaway. All the details that you need to connect will be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to change it at any time. All commands that are allowed are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you should use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
