SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are significantly more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

In case you have a cloud hosting account with our company and you'd like to deal with your content remotely using SSH, you can easily obtain SSH access to the account via your Hepsia Control Panel. If your plan doesn't come with this feature by default, you could add it with several clicks through the Upgrades menu. In the SSH section of the Control Panel, you shall see the host, the port number and the username that you need to use when you connect to the account. You may also pick what password you would want to use, given that it does not need to be the same as the one for your account. We've prepared many Help articles where you can find all of the commands that you will be able to use with a shared hosting package, plus examples of how they're used. Moreover, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client like FileZilla, for example.
