Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote server or to exchange information between a hosting server and a client. Since the information exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a third party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favored means of handling a hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited as you won't have root access to the website hosting server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so on. They're all actions that are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote server as well.

You will be able to use SSH to handle your content regardless which VPS servers you choose when you sign up, as all our plans offer this function by default. You will not need to add or allow anything manually - as soon as your website hosting server is prepared and you get the Welcome e mail with the login credentials, you could connect and start working on your sites or any software which you want to set up and run on the web server. You'll have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from all of the other accounts on the physical hosting server, you'll be able to do anything you need without any restrictions. You may set up any app you require and that will run on a Linux-based hosting server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and work with your files and databases quickly and easily.
