SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

You may get SSH access through the section related to it where you shall also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may pick the password that you shall use and, if required, you'll be able to change it with several clicks from the same place. All commands which can be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS

All our virtual private server solutions include SSH access by default, so you won't need to include any upgrades or enable anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login info, you shall be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have chosen throughout the signup process. As the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands which you can run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage just about everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. Thus, you can work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and secure way.
