Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited because you'll not have root access to the machine, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Website Hosting
SSH access may be enabled with a mouse click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud website hosting that you've selected includes this function by default. If not, you could add it through the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it straightaway. You'll find all the information which you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, along with thorough Help articles where we have listed the commands that you can use in the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password can be changed from the same section at any time with a few clicks. Provided that SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers

As soon as SSH access to your semi-dedicated server account is activated, you'll be able to use an FTP program and establish an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions come with SSH access as standard, so you shall not need to include any upgrades or activate anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've selected throughout the signup process. Because the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands which you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage just about everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you may work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and protected way.
