Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If the shared hosting package deal that you’ve picked during the signup process includes SSH access by default, you'll be able to activate this feature with only a mouse click within your Hepsia Control Panel. If you have picked a different plan, the SSH access feature may be added through the Upgrades menu and it will become available right away. All the information which you need connect shall be conveniently listed in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same place and you will be able to change it at any time. All commands that are allowed are listed inside the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you shall be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
You shall be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which Linux VPS hosting packages you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all of our plans offer this feature as standard. You will not have to include or allow anything manually - the instant your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you can connect and begin working on your Internet sites or any software which you want to install and run on the machine. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from all of the other accounts in the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You could set up any app you require and that shall work on a Linux-based hosting server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases fast and easy.
