Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for example, the alternatives are limited because you will not have root access to the machine, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use 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 access could be allowed with a click through the Hepsia Control Panel if the shared hosting you have picked provides this feature by default. If not, you can add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it right away. You will find all the information and facts which you need within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, alongside in depth Help articles in which we've listed all the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax which you have use. The SSH password may be modified from the very same section anytime with several clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect safely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, each of the files which you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
