SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH Telnet in Shared Website Hosting

SSH access is featured with all shared website hosting that we offer. With some of them, it is included as standard, while with others it's an additional upgrade which you can include with a few mouse clicks from your hosting Control Panel. You can obtain SSH access through the section related to it where you can also find the info that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You will be able to select the password that you'll use and, if necessary, you will be able to change it with a couple of clicks from the same spot. All commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you'll also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

You are able to choose the password that you'll use and if you would like, you may change it all the time with several clicks for even higher security.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You won't need to add or allow anything manually - the minute your hosting server is ready and you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you can connect and begin working on your sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the web server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and since the account will be isolated from the other accounts within the physical web server, you shall be able to do anything you would like without any restrictions. You may set up any app which you need and which shall run on a Linux-based web server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and manage your files and databases quickly and easily.
