Find out more about SSH and how this simple protocol can provide you with the ability to easily handle whole web servers.
Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange information between a web server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the possibilities are limited as you shall not have root access to the server, so you could only create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access could be allowed with a click via the Hepsia Control Panel if the Linux cloud hosting that you've picked comes with this feature by default. If not, you could add it from the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You'll discover all the information and facts you need inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username that you have to use, alongside in depth Help articles in which we have listed the commands which you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password could be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you will also be able to connect securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
