SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud web hosting package that you have selected includes this function by default. If not, you can include it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You will discover all the details that you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, alongside in depth Help articles in which we've listed all of the commands you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be changed from the very same section anytime with a few clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
