Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on 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 website hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Hosting
In case you have a hosting account with us and you'd like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you may get SSH access to the account using your Hepsia Control Panel. If your package doesn't come with this feature by default, you could add it with a few clicks through the Upgrades menu. Inside the SSH section of the Control Panel, you'll see the host, the port number and the username which you should use when you connect to the account. You can also select what password you would like to use, since it does not have to be the same as the one for the account. We've prepared numerous Help articles in which you can easily find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, plus examples of how they're used. Also, if SSH access is enabled for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection via a standard client like FileZilla, for instance.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
When you purchase a new virtual private server from our company, it will offer full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The feature comes by default with all package deals, so you will not have to enable or upgrade anything. Your website hosting server will be set up right after you purchase it and the instant you receive the Welcome e mail with the login info, you could connect through the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you can install and run any app which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
