SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to transfer encoded data between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH because of the higher security level. The connection is made and the commands are delivered using a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives could be created 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 can be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, for the reason that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server shall be affected. While SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

The moment your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details that you've entered during the order procedure.

You can download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or simply a certain software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
