SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange encrypted info between a client and a server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy customers opt for SSH mainly because of the enhanced security level. The connection is made and the commands are sent through a command line. The available options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, your options are a lot more - the web server and the database server can be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, since full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server shall be affected. Although SSH is employed largely with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Web Hosting

The virtual private server plans that we offer come with SSH access as standard, not as a paid upgrade or a feature that you have to enable. As soon as your new server is prepared, you'll be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details which you have entered during the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials will be sent to you via e mail too. As your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there are no limitations as to what you can or cannot do through SSH. You could download, install and manage any piece of software which will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases with no restrictions. All you'll need for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
