SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH mainly because of the higher level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access may be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud website hosting you have chosen provides this feature by default. If not, you can add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You will discover all the information and facts which you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username that you need to use, alongside comprehensive Help articles where we've listed all the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the same section anytime with several mouse clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely and securely using an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, each of the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
