SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encrypted data between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are much more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

With some of them, it's provided as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade which you can include with several mouse clicks from your hosting CP. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it where you can also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could select the password that you will use and, if necessary, you shall be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same location. All commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article together with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is permitted for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans which we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you must activate. The minute your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or can't do through SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux server, reboot your entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
