SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that is used to transfer protected info between a client and a hosting server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any info. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH due to the improved level of security. The connection is made and the commands are delivered through a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be relocated or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be installed and more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is needed and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Though SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

You will be able to use SSH to manage your content irrespective of which VPS web hosting plans you select when you sign up, because all of our plans provide this feature by default. You will not need to add or allow anything by hand - the instant your web server is ready and you get the Welcome e-mail with the login information, you could connect and start working on your sites or any software that you'd like to set up and run on the hosting server. You will have root-level access to the VPS and due to the fact that the account will be isolated from all the other accounts within the physical hosting server, you will be able to do anything you want without any restrictions. You may set up any app you need and that will run on a Linux-based server, restart any software server (web, database, game, media, etc.) and handle your files and databases quickly and easily.
