Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange information between a website hosting server and a client. Given that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party can't intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a website hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the options are limited since you'll not have root access to the server, so you can simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, etcetera. They're all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll be able to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server packages come with SSH access as standard, so you will not need to include any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login information, you'll be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials which you have selected through the signup procedure. Because the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions in terms of the commands which you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you can work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and secure way.
