Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a web server and a client. Because the info exchanged by the two sides is protected, a third party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for instance, the possibilities are limited as you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. These are all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. Using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are a lot of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

If not, you can add it using the Add Services/Upgrades section of your Control Panel and enable it right away. You will discover all the information and facts you need in the SSH section of the Control Panel - the host, the port number and the username which you must use, as well as in depth Help articles where we have listed the commands you can use inside the account and examples of the syntax that you have to use. The SSH password may be changed from the exact same section at any time with a couple of mouse clicks. So long as SSH access is enabled, you'll also be able to connect securely through an FTP client too. With an SFTP connection, all of the files you upload shall go through an encrypted connection.
SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Hosting

With some packages, the function is provided by default, while with others, it can be included as an optional upgrade for as long as you need it.

SSH Telnet in VPS
The virtual private server offers which we offer come with SSH access by default, not as an optional upgrade or a feature which you have to enable. Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details which you have entered throughout 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 are no limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot your entire server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
