SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives can 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 may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Web Hosting

SSH access is offered with all shared web hosting plans which we offer you. With some of them, it is featured as standard, while with others it's an optional upgrade which you can add with several clicks in your website hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it in which you can also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to select the password which you'll use and, if necessary, you will be able to modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same location. All the commands that may be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article along with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions come with SSH access by default, so you will not need to include any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login info, you shall be able to connect through its main IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen throughout the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you can run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and risk-free way.
