SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol employed to exchange protected data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users prefer SSH due to the enhanced level of security. The connection is created and the commands are delivered using a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files may be moved or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives could 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 can be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other customers on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed predominantly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so forth.

SSH Telnet in VPS Servers

All our VPS server solutions provide SSH access as standard, so you will not have to add any upgrades or enable anything - the instant the server is set up and you receive its login details, you will be able to connect using its main IP address and the login credentials that you've picked throughout the signup procedure. Since the VPS accounts include full root-level access, there are no restrictions with regards to the commands which you can run. Your server will be isolated from the other ones on the physical machine, so you shall be able to manage more or less everything through a command line, including server-side software installations and reboots.
