SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting package that you’ve selected through the signup process comes with SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with simply a mouse click from your Hepsia CP. If you've picked a different package, the SSH access feature may be included through the Upgrades menu and it shall become available immediately. All the information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same spot and you shall be able to modify it at any time. All of the commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
