SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, 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 choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access could be permitted with a mouse click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud hosting plan you have chosen comes with this function by default. If not, you could include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it straightaway. You will find all the information you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, as well as detailed Help articles in which we've listed all the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password can be modified from the same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
