SSH, or Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to connect to a web server and perform different tasks through a command line. The protocol is popular with many skilled users, due to the fact that the info transmitted over it is encrypted, so it may not be intercepted on the way by a third party. SSH access can be used for a variety of things with regards to the type of website hosting account. With a shared hosting account, for instance, SSH is one of several ways to import/export a database or to upload a file when the website hosting server allows it. When you have a virtual or a dedicated server, SSH can be used for just about everything - you can install software or restart particular services such as the web server or the database server which run on the machine. SSH is employed mostly with UNIX-like Platforms, but there are clients which permit you to employ the protocol if your computer system is working with a different Operating System too. The connection is created on TCP port 22 by default and the remote server always listens for incoming connections on that port although a lot of providers change it for security reasons.

As soon as your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you have entered during the order procedure. 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 aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
