SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted info between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users choose SSH mainly because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

You can even set what password to use from the same place and you shall be able to modify it anytime. All the commands that are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you have to use.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
All our VPS server solutions include SSH access by default, so you shall not need to include any upgrades or activate anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you shall be able to connect via its main IP address and the login credentials that you've selected during the signup process. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you may run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you may work with your files, databases and any apps you install in a fast and secure way.
