SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to transfer encoded information between a client and a web server, which makes it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy clients opt for SSH mainly because of the improved level of security. The connection is established and the commands are sent via a command line. The offered options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for example, files can be transferred or deleted, databases could be imported and exported, and archives may be set up or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are considerably more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software could be set up and a lot more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, because full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. While SSH is employed primarily with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs as well - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions provide SSH access by default, so you won't have to include any upgrades or activate anything - the second the server is set up and you receive its login info, you will be able to connect through its primary IP address and the login credentials that you've picked during the signup process. As the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions regarding the commands which you may run. Your server shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you'll be able to manage virtually everything using a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots. In this way, you can work with your files, databases and any applications which you install in a fast and protected way.
