Secure Shell, commonly known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol that is used to execute commands on a remote machine or to exchange data between a website hosting server and a client. Due to the fact that the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encrypted, a 3rd party won't be able to intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling a web hosting account. The commands which may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared hosting server, for instance, the options are limited as you'll not have root access to the server, so you can just create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etc. They are all actions that are carried out in the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you will have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the machine or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted via a command line, but if you do not use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a lot of apps for other OSs, which you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server solutions we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a function which you should activate. The minute your new server is ready, you shall be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details you have entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do through SSH. You'll be able to download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the entire server or simply a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you will need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
