Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange info between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of managing a web hosting account. The commands which can be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the choices are limited because you simply won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etc. These are all actions which are executed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

You could select the password that you will use and, if needed, you shall be able to change it with a few clicks from the same spot. All the commands which can be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article alongside relevant instances.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you must enable. As soon as your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations in regards to what you can or can't do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
