SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting
When you have a shared website hosting account with our company and you want to manage your content remotely using SSH, you can receive SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't provide this feature by default, you may add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the CP, you will see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you would want to use, considering that it doesn't have to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you may find all of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you shall be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
