SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer encoded information between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH due to the improved security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files may be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives can be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your choices are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed plus much 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. Though SSH is used primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

All the info which you need connect will be conveniently listed inside the SSH section of the CP - the hostname, the username and the port number. You could also set what password to use from the same location and you will be able to change it whenever you want. All commands that are permitted are listed within the Help articles that we've prepared for you, along with examples of the syntax which you have to use.
