Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited as you'll not have root access to the web server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. These are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Website Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux website hosting that you've picked comes with this feature as standard. If not, you may add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You'll discover all the information and facts you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you need to use, alongside thorough Help articles in which we have listed all the commands that you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section at any time with a couple of clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.

A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e-mail too. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do using SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
