SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your 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, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in Shared Hosting

SSH access is provided with all shared hosting we offer. With some of them, it is featured as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade you can include with a few clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access from the section related to it in which you can also find the info which you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to pick the password which you shall use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with a few clicks from the same spot. All commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you will also be able to upload files using your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server solutions we offer include SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you should activate. As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
