SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange encoded data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH mainly because of the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. While SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

SSH access is featured with all Linux hosting that we provide. With some of them, it's provided by default, while with others it is an optional upgrade that you can add with just a few mouse clicks from your website hosting CP. You may get SSH access from the section related to it where you can also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could choose the password which you'll use and, if required, you will be able to change it with several mouse clicks from the same place. All of the commands which could be used with our shared plans are listed within a help article together with relevant instances. If the SSH access function is permitted for your account, you shall also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.
