SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to connect to a server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many experienced users, for the reason that the data transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access could be employed for a number of things depending on the type of web hosting account. With a shared hosting account, in particular, SSH is among the ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the web server allows for it. If you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH may be used for just about anything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server that run on the machine. SSH is employed typically with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients that enable you to employ the protocol if your PC is using a different OS too. The connection is made on TCP port 22 by default and the remote hosting server always listens for incoming connections on that port even though many providers change it for security reasons.
SSH Telnet in Cloud Hosting

If you have chosen a different plan, the SSH access feature can be included using the Upgrades menu and it'll become available at once. All the info that you need to connect shall be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You can also set what password to use from the same location and you'll be able to change it at any time. All of the commands which are permitted are listed inside the Help articles that we have prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you should use. An additional advantage of permitting SSH access to your account is that you will be able to upload files using an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers
The VPS server plans that we offer provide SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a feature which you should enable. Once your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail too. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there are no limitations as to what you can or can't do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the whole server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
