SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are delivered through a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the choices are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be set up and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

In the same spot, you'll discover the server name, the port number and the username required to connect to our platform.

For better security, you could also change it as frequently as you need. A complete list of the commands that can be executed within a semi-dedicated account is available in our Knowledge Base, alongside the syntax and a number of examples.

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