SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to transfer encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy clients prefer SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are significantly more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software can be installed and a lot more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

When you order a new VPS server from our company, it'll come with full root access and you'll be able to connect to the server and to handle everything using an SSH console. The function is included as standard with all package deals, so you will not need to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server shall be set up soon after you purchase it and the minute you get the Welcome e mail with the login details, you may connect via the server’s main IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is isolated from the other accounts inside the physical machine, there won't be any restrictions in terms of the commands which you can use. You will have full root access, so you can install and run any app which can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot the entire machine or any software running on it.
