Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange information between a web server and a client. As the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited since you will not have root access to the web server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

You could select the password which you shall use and, if required, you shall be able to modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same place. All commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server offers come with SSH access as standard, so you won't need to add any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials that you have picked through the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands that you can run. Your server will be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage pretty much everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any apps that you install in a fast and safe way.
