Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the two sides is encrypted, a 3rd party simply cannot intercept it, which makes SSH an ideal means of handling a hosting account. The commands that could be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared web server, for instance, the options are limited because you simply won't have root access to the machine, so you could simply create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions that are performed inside the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you shall have the option to install server-side software or to restart the server or just a particular service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you don't employ a UNIX-like OS, there are plenty of applications for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

All our virtual private server solutions feature SSH access as standard, so you won't need to add any upgrades or enable anything - as soon as the server is set up and you receive its login info, you'll be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials which you have picked during the signup procedure. As the VPS accounts come with full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you may run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you will be able to manage just about everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. This way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications you install in a fast and secure way.
