SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to connect to a web server and perform various tasks using a command line. The protocol is employed by many expert users, because the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it can't be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access may be used for a number of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for example, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file if the server allows for it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH could be used for virtually everything - you may install software or restart certain services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like Operating Systems, but there are clients that permit you to employ the protocol if your computer is using a different OS too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote web server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a number of providers change it for security reasons.

You can choose the password that you will use and, if required, you will be able to modify it with a couple of clicks from the same spot. All commands that may be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant examples.

If your package does not support this feature by default, you'll be able to add it without difficulty using the Upgrades menu.

You will have root-level access to the VPS and because the account will be separated from all the other accounts inside the physical web server, you'll be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You can install any application you need and which will run on a Linux-based server, reboot any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases easily and quickly.
