Find out exactly what SSH is and just how you may control an entire server with it.
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer protected info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers favor SSH due to the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up 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 may be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

You may also select what password you want to use, considering that it doesn't need to be the same as the one for your account. We have prepared several Help articles where you can find all the commands you will be able to use with a shared hosting plan, as well as examples of how they're used. Furthermore, if SSH access is permitted for your account, you'll be able to establish a Secure FTP (SFTP) connection using a standard client such as FileZilla, for example.

You will have full root access, so that you could install and run any application that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
