What is SSH? How to control a server over SSH?
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting
If the shared web hosting
plan that you’ve selected through the signup process includes SSH access by default, you will be able to activate this feature with a mouse click inside your Hepsia CP. In case you have selected a different plan, the SSH access feature can be added through the Upgrades menu and it will become available right away. All the information that you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same location and you will be able to modify it anytime. All commands which are permitted are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, in addition to examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

you choose when you sign up, as all our plans include this feature by default.

You shall have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be separated from all of the other accounts on the physical server, you shall be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You may set up any app which you need and that will run on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
