Secure Shell, better known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a hosting server and a client. Since the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a favorite means of handling a website hosting account. The commands which could be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the choices are limited since you won't have root access to the web server, so you could just create/move/delete files, create and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so on. These are all actions which are carried out inside the shared hosting account and do not require a higher level of access. By using a virtual or a dedicated server, you will be able to install server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like OS, there are a variety of apps for other OSs, that you can use to connect to the remote server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

All our virtual private server packages feature SSH access as standard, so you shall not need to include any upgrades or enable anything - the moment the server is set up and you receive its login details, you will be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials which you've selected during the signup procedure. Due to the fact that the VPS accounts feature full root-level access, there aren't any restrictions regarding the commands which you could run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you may work with your files, databases and any apps which you install in a fast and secure way.
