SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.
SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting
SSH access is provided with all shared hosting
which we offer. With some of them, it is provided as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade which you can include with a few mouse clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it in which you will also find the details which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password which you'll use and, if needed, you will be able to modify it with several clicks from the same place. All commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed inside a help article along with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting
The virtual private server
plans that we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature that you have to activate. As soon as your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content via the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or can't do via SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot your entire server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
