Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the alternatives are limited as you will not have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
If the cloud web hosting plan which you’ve picked throughout the signup procedure includes SSH access as standard, you shall be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click within your Hepsia CP. If you have selected a different plan, the SSH access feature could be included via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available right away. All the info which you need connect shall be conveniently listed inside 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 spot and you will be able to modify it whenever you want. All commands which are permitted are listed inside 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 through an SFTP connection.
