Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Given that the info exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of handling a web hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for example, the alternatives are limited because you shall not have root access to the machine, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are executed within the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the web server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH access can be allowed with a mouse click from the Hepsia Control Panel if the cloud web hosting which you have picked comes with this feature as standard. If not, you can include it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your CP and enable it at once. You'll find all the details which you need in the SSH section of the CP - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, along with in depth Help articles where we have listed all of the commands you can use within 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 couple of mouse clicks. Assuming that SSH access is enabled, you shall also be able to connect safely and securely via an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all of the files that you upload will go through an encrypted connection.
