SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could 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 choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
In case you have a cloud website hosting account with us and you want to deal with your content remotely through SSH, you can easily receive SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package deal does not offer this feature as standard, you may add it with a couple of clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you would like to use, considering that it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We have prepared several Help articles where you can find all the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they are used. Additionally, if SSH access is allowed for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection through a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

Your web server will be set up shortly after you order it and the minute you receive the Welcome e mail with the login info, you can connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there will be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you may install and run any app which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software operating on it.
