Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote web server or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Because the data exchanged by the two sides is encoded, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of controlling a hosting account. The commands which could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the choices are limited as you'll not have root access to the hosting server, so you may simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, and so forth. They are all actions which are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't require a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are tons of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

Once your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content through the login details you have entered through the order procedure.

You can download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or just a particular 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.
