SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted information between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH because of the better security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using 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 may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is used mainly 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 can be permitted with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting which you have selected offers this function by default. If not, you can include it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it immediately. You'll find all the info you need within the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, alongside in depth Help articles in which we have listed the commands which you can use within the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect safely using an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
