SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting

When you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you would like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you could receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not include this feature as standard, you can easily add it with several clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also choose what password you want to use, as it does not need to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles in which you can find each of the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as 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 example.

Once your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations regarding what you can or can't do through SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
