SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved 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 a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

All the details you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same location and you shall be able to modify it anytime. All of the commands that are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of enabling SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

When you buy a new virtual private server from our company, it will come with full root access and you shall be able to connect to the server and to manage everything using an SSH console. The function is included by default with all plans, so you shall not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your web server shall be set up immediately after you buy it and the minute you get the Welcome e-mail with the login info, you may connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions with regards to the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so you can install and run any application that can work on a Linux machine, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
