SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

In case you have a cloud website hosting account with our company and you want to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you can easily get SSH access to the account through your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not offer this feature as standard, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared many Help articles in which you can find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account shall be separated from all the other accounts within the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You could set up any application that you need and that shall run on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases fast and easy.
