SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

You may choose the password which you'll use and, if necessary, you will be able to modify it with several mouse clicks from the same spot. All commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article together with relevant instances.

The feature is included as standard with all packages, so you shall not need to enable or upgrade anything. Your web server will be set up immediately after you order it and as soon as you receive the Welcome email with the login info, you can connect using the server’s primary IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts within the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you could set up and run any app which can work on a Linux hosting server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the whole machine or any software running on it.
