SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer encoded info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can 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 can be installed 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 clients on that server shall be affected. Though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

With some of them, it's included as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can include with a couple of clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You can get SSH access through the section related to it where you can also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can choose the password that you'll use and, if necessary, you'll be able to change it with several mouse clicks from the same place. All of the commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access function 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 Servers
All our VPS server plans come with SSH access as standard, so you will not have to include any upgrades or activate anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have selected through the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you can work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and safe way.
