What is SSH? How can you handle a server via SSH?
Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. As the info exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the choices are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you may only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. These are all actions that are performed in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or just a certain service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

The SSH password may be modified from the exact same section anytime with several clicks. As long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely through an FTP client as well. With an SFTP connection, all the files you upload will go through an encrypted connection.

accounts provide you with the possibility to access and handle them through SSH.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server
solutions that we offer include SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you must enable. As soon as your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details you have entered during the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. 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 via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or only a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
