Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the choices are limited since you'll not have root access to the web server, so you can only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They're all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access may be permitted with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting which you have picked provides this function by default. If not, you may add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it immediately. You will find all the information and facts which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you must use, alongside thorough Help articles where we've listed each of the commands which you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
