SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other customers on that server will be affected. While SSH is used predominantly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

In case you have selected a different plan, the SSH access feature could be included via the Upgrades menu and it'll become available right away. All the info that you need to connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can even set what password to use from the same spot and you will be able to change it at any time. All commands which are allowed are listed within the Help articles which we have prepared for you, together with examples of the syntax which you need to use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you'll be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.
