SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange protected information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH mainly because of the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

All the commands that are allowed are listed in the Help articles which we've prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you have to use.

SSH Telnet in VPS

All our virtual private server packages feature SSH access by default, so you will not need to include any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you will be able to connect using its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have chosen through the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you could 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 through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
