Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the alternatives are limited because you will not have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it in which you will also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password which you'll use and, if needed, you'll be able to change it with a few clicks from the same place. All commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

You'll be able to use SSH to control your content regardless of which Linux virtual private servers you pick when you sign up, since all our packages offer this feature by default. You won't have to add or activate anything manually - the moment your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your websites or any software that you would like to set up and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be isolated from all of the other accounts inside the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you'd like with no restrictions. You may set up any app you require and that shall run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases efficiently.
