SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded information between a client and a server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH due to the better security level. The connection is established and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files could be relocated or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

If you have picked a different plan, the SSH access feature can be added via the Upgrades menu and it will become available instantly. All the information you need to connect shall be conveniently listed within the SSH section of the Control Panel - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to modify it at any time. All the commands that are allowed are listed in the Help articles which we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax that you must use. An additional advantage of allowing SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

If you order a new VPS server from our company, it'll feature full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to manage everything via an SSH console. The function is included as standard with all packages, so you shall not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your server will be set up right after you purchase it and the instant you receive the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect via the server’s main IP address and start working. Because the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands you can use. You shall have full root access, so you can install and run any application which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
