SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange protected info between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients choose SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options 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 are not possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

All of the commands that could be used with our shared plans are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances. If the SSH access function is allowed for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your preferred FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in Semi-dedicated Servers
