SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users opt for SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

With some of them, it is included by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade which you can include with several mouse clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it where you can also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password which you will use and, if required, you'll be able to change it with a few clicks from the same place. All the commands that may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances.

SSH Telnet in VPS
You'll be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you select when you sign up, because all our plans include this feature as standard. You'll not need to add or allow anything by hand - the instant your website hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your web sites or any software which you want to install and run on the server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be separated from all the other accounts within the physical web server, you will be able to do anything you need with no restrictions. You may set up any app you need and that will work on a Linux-based machine, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases efficiently.
