SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to transfer protected data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

You may pick the password that you shall use and, if needed, you will be able to change it with a couple of clicks from the same location. All commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server plans provide SSH access as standard, so you will not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you will be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen throughout the signup process. As the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any 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 virtually everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots.
