SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers choose SSH because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

You may choose the password that you will use and, if needed, you shall be able to modify it with a couple of mouse clicks from the same spot. All commands which may be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

When you acquire a new VPS server from us, it shall offer full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to control everything via an SSH console.

Your web server will be set up immediately after you buy it and the moment you get the Welcome email with the login info, you may connect via the server’s primary IP address and start working. Since the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application that can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
