SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can 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 installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

You may get SSH access through the section dedicated to it in which you will also find the details you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to pick the password that you'll use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same spot. All commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article together with relevant examples. 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.

Your hosting server shall be set up right after you get it and the instant you get the Welcome e mail with the login information, you could connect through the server’s primary IP address and begin working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there will be no restrictions regarding the commands that you can use. You shall have full root access, so that you could set up and run any application that can work on a Linux web server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
