Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol used to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange info between a hosting server and a client. Because the information exchanged by the 2 sides is protected, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of managing a hosting account. The commands that may be executed are determined by the type of hosting service. On a shared server, in particular, the options are limited as you simply won't have root access to the web server, so you can only create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, export and import databases, etcetera. They are all actions which are performed within the shared hosting account and do not need a higher level of access. With a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to set up server-side software or to restart the hosting server or just a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted through a command line, and if you don't use a UNIX-like Operating System, there are plenty of apps for other OSs, you can employ to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server solutions that we offer feature SSH access as standard, not as an optional upgrade or a function that you should activate. The minute your new server is ready, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content via the login details that you've entered through the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via e mail too. Because your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations regarding what you can or cannot do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux machine, reboot your entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with virtually no restrictions. All you'll need for this is a console or an SSH client on your end.
