Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of controlling a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the alternatives are limited because you'll not have root access to the web server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

You could get SSH access from the section dedicated to it where you will also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password which you will use and, if required, you'll be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same spot. All commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages come with SSH access by default, so you won't have to include any upgrades or activate anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials which you've selected during the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions in terms of the commands that you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you may work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and safe way.
