SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded info between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be relocated or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are much more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and more. These things aren't 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. Even though SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

The moment your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details that you've entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. As your VPS shall be isolated from the others on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations in regards to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You are able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot the whole server or simply a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
