SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting plan which you’ve selected throughout the signup procedure offers SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this feature with just a click in your Hepsia Control Panel. If you've picked a different package, the SSH access feature can be included using the Upgrades menu and it'll become available immediately. All the information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same place and you'll be able to change it at any time. All of the commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles that we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you need to use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.
