SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encoded info between a client and a website hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH because of the improved security level. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could 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 could be set up and more. These things are not possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

In the same location, you'll find the server name, the port number and the username needed to connect to our platform.

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