Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange info between a server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of managing an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the options are limited as you will not have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the option to set up server-side software or to restart the web server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are a number of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote hosting server as well.

If not, you may add it via the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it instantly. You will discover all the information and facts which you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you have to use, as well as detailed Help articles where we have listed all of the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the very same section at any time with a couple of clicks.

SSH Telnet in VPS
All our virtual private server solutions include SSH access by default, so you won't need to include any upgrades or enable anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials which you have chosen through the signup process. Since the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands that you could run. Your server shall be isolated from the others on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage pretty much everything via a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you'll be able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and risk-free way.
