SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol used to exchange encrypted information between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH due to the better level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, in particular, files can be moved 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 a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be installed plus much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

When you purchase a new virtual private server from us, it shall feature full root access and you will be able to connect to the server and to handle everything via an SSH console. The function comes by default with all plans, so you will not have to activate or upgrade anything. Your hosting server will be set up right after you purchase it and the instant you receive the Welcome e mail with the login information, you can connect through the server’s primary IP address and start working. Given that the VPS is a software emulation of a dedicated server and is separated from the other accounts on the physical machine, there'll be no restrictions regarding the commands you can use. You'll have full root access, so that you can install and run any app that can work on a Linux server, manage files, folders and databases or start/stop/reboot your entire machine or any software running on it.
