Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the options are limited since you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. They're all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
If you have a shared hosting account with us and you would like to deal with your content remotely via SSH, you could obtain SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package does not come with this feature by default, you could add it with a couple of mouse clicks from the Upgrades menu. Within the SSH section of the Control Panel, you will see the host, the port number and the username that you should use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you want to use, since it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared numerous Help articles where you can find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, along with examples of how they are used. Moreover, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you will be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection by using a standard client such as FileZilla, for instance.

You are able to choose the password you'll use and if you'd like, you can change it on a regular basis with a few clicks for even higher security. You shall be able to see all the commands which you can use upfront, as we've listed them alongside examples of how they are used in order to carry out a certain task. The moment SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is allowed, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
