Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a web server and a client. Due to the fact that the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of managing a website hosting account. The commands that can be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, in particular, the options are limited since you won't have root access to the hosting server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They are all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

All the information which you need connect will be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You may also set what password to use from the same spot and you'll be able to change it whenever you want. All of the commands that are permitted are listed inside the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you have to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

The VPS server plans that we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function that you should enable. The moment your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do through SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
