SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the website hosting service which you have picked includes this feature as standard. If not, you may include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it at once. You will find all the information and facts you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, along with thorough Help articles where we've listed each of the commands you can use within the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be modified from the exact same section anytime with several mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

You can select the password that you'll use and if you want to, you could change it all the time with a couple of mouse clicks for even better security. You shall be able to see all the commands you can use beforehand, since we've listed them all along with examples of how they are used in order to carry out a particular task.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
All our virtual private server offers provide SSH access by default, so you will not have to add any upgrades or activate anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login info, you shall be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials that you have selected through the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage just about everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and protected way.
