Secure Shell, better 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. Given that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, in particular, the choices are limited since you won't have root access to the machine, so you could only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They're all actions that are carried out in 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 machine or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH access is available with all Linux cloud web hosting which we provide. With some of them, it's included as standard, while with others it is an optional upgrade that you can include with just a few mouse clicks from your website hosting Control Panel. You could get SSH access through the section dedicated to it where you will also find the details that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You may pick the password that you will use and, if necessary, you'll be able to modify it with a few mouse clicks from the same spot. All the commands which may be used with our shared packages are listed within a help article together with relevant examples. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you shall also be able to upload files using your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

With some packages, the function is offered as standard, and with others, it may be included as and additional upgrade for as long as you need it.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server solutions we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you must activate. The minute your new server is ready, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e-mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do using SSH. You may download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
