SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the better security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be moved or deleted, databases may 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 may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

If you have a shared hosting account with our company and you'd like to manage your content remotely through SSH, you can obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan does not provide this feature as standard, you may add it with a few clicks from the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You could also pick what password you would like to use, as it doesn't need to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared several Help articles where you may find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.
