Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. As the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited because you'll not have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. They are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

You could select the password that you shall use and, if needed, you shall be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same spot. All the commands that can be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article together with relevant instances.

SSH Telnet in VPS
All our virtual private server packages provide SSH access as standard, so you won't need to add any upgrades or activate anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials that you have chosen through the signup process. Since the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
