What precisely is SSH? How do you control a server via SSH?
SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encoded information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients favor SSH due to the higher level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files could be transferred 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 much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

You can get SSH access through the section related to it where you will also find the information that you need to connect - the host, the port number and the username. You could pick the password that you'll use and, if required, you shall be able to change it with a couple of clicks from the same location. All of the commands that could be used with our shared packages are listed in a help article alongside relevant instances.
