What precisely is SSH? How can you control a server over SSH?
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, 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 and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
If you have a website hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you may get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal doesn't include this feature by default, you can add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the CP, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you would like to use, since it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared a lot of Help articles in which you could find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
