Secure Shell, also known as SSH, is a cryptographic network protocol employed to execute commands on a remote hosting server or to exchange data between a server and a client. As the data exchanged by the 2 sides is encoded, a 3rd party cannot intercept it, which makes SSH a preferred means of controlling an Internet hosting account. The commands that may be executed depend on the type of hosting service. On a shared server, for example, the possibilities are limited as you will not have root access to the server, so you could simply create/move/delete files, set up and unpack archives, import and export databases, and so forth. They're all actions that are performed within the shared hosting account and don't need a higher level of access. Through a virtual or a dedicated server, you'll have the ability to install server-side software or to restart the machine or only a specific service (web server, database server, etc.). SSH commands are submitted with a command line, and if you don't employ a UNIX-like Operating System, there are a variety of applications for other OSs, which you can use to connect to the remote web server as well.

SSH Telnet in VPS

All our virtual private server packages provide SSH access by default, so you will not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login details, you'll be able to connect via its primary IP address and the login credentials which you've selected throughout the signup procedure. Due to the fact that 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 shall be able to manage more or less everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. That way, you are able to work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and safe way.
