Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited since you shall not have root access to the server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall 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 via a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Web Hosting
SSH access is offered with all Linux cloud web hosting which we provide. With some of them, it's featured by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade you can add with just a few mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section related to it in which you will also find the info you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can choose the password which you will use and, if needed, you'll be able to change it with a few mouse clicks from the same spot. All commands which can be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
