SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to exchange protected data between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH mainly because of the higher 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, in particular, files can be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall 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 forth.

The virtual private server packages we offer come with SSH access by default, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you need to activate. As soon as your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content using the login details you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail as well. Since your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical server, there are no limitations as to what you can or can't do using SSH. You'll be able to download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or just a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
