See exactly what SSH is and also how it is possible to manage an entire server with it.
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer protected data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could 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 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 would be affected. Even though SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting
SSH access is offered with all cloud hosting
that we offer you. With some of them, it is included as standard, while with others it is an additional upgrade you can include with a few clicks in your web hosting Control Panel. You may get SSH access from the section related to it in which you will also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to pick the password which you will use and, if needed, you will be able to change it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same place. All the commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed inside a help article alongside relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is allowed for your account, you'll also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.
SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
You shall be able to use SSH to handle your content irrespective of which VPS servers
you choose when you sign up, due to the fact that all our plans come with this feature as standard. You'll not need to add or activate anything manually - the instant your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome email with the login information, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your websites or any software which you want to set up and run on the web server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and since the account shall be separated from the other accounts in the physical server, you'll be able to do anything you want with no restrictions. You could install any app you need and which will work on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases easily and quickly.
