SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in Website Hosting

SSH access is offered with all website hosting we offer. With some of them, it is included by default, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can add with a couple of clicks in your hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access from the section related to it where you will also find the information which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You can pick the password that you will use and, if required, you'll be able to modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same spot. All of the commands which can be used with our shared plans 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 through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which VPS servers you pick when you sign up, since all of our plans come with this feature as standard. You'll not have to add or activate anything manually - immediately after your web server is prepared and you receive the Welcome email with the login information, you may connect and start working on your sites or any software that you want to set up and run on the hosting 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 server, you will be able to do anything you'd like without any restrictions. You can set up any app that you need and that shall run on a Linux-based web server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases quickly and easily.
