This direct access to the server empowers web hosting customers to efficiently manage their resources.
With our recently introduced web-based SSH functionality, users on our platform can now access a server directly through their web browser, eliminating the need for a traditional SSH client.
For further insights into the advantages of utilizing web-based SSH, please refer to our informative post.
As a network protocol, SSH enables the creation of secure connections between computers.
Typically, this involves using an SSH client, which enables a user to establish a connection with another computer's SSH server, enabling remote command execution.
Any authorized user can utilize an SSH client on their computer to connect to systems accessible via the SSH protocol.
In the context of web hosting, SSH provides users with the capability to directly access their projects on the server and perform various actions on them. For instance, a user can use SSH commands to view a list of files within the directory where their projects are stored.
As implied by its name, web SSH permits users to skip the conventional SSH client and establish a connection to a server through their chosen web browser. The interaction between the browser and the SSH server is facilitated through an intermediary web application server.
Here are the key advantages of web-based SSH in summary:
We have seamlessly incorporated the web-based SSH feature into the Web Hosting Control Panel.
Users can access it by clicking on the Web SSH icon located in the header section of the dashboard, positioned conveniently next to the Help Centre icon.
Our implementation of web-based SSH operates as follows:
Please note: Web-based SSH functionality is available at no additional cost for all web hosting plans that include SSH as a feature or offer it as an upgrade option.
Web SSH combines the server access capabilities of the SSH protocol with the user-friendly and flexible nature of web browsers. It's a valuable feature that can be conveniently used from any device and location, enhancing the appeal and usability of the Web Hosting Control Panel.
