SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol which is used to exchange encrypted data between a client and a hosting server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any data. Many tech-savvy users favor SSH mainly because of the better level of security. The connection is made and the commands are sent via a command line. The accessible options depend on the type of web hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files can be moved or deleted, databases may be imported and exported, and archives may be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are a lot more - the web server and the database server could be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up plus much more. These things are not possible on a shared server, because full root access is needed and all the other clients on that server would be affected. Although SSH is employed mainly with UNIX-like Operating Systems, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, etc.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting
The virtual private server plans that we offer feature SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function that you need to activate. As soon as your new server is prepared, you will be able to connect and begin working on your content through the login details that you've entered throughout the order process. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. Because your VPS will be isolated from the other ones on the physical web server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or can't do via SSH. You can download, install and manage any piece of software that will run on a Linux web server, reboot the entire server or only a specific software component, and work with files, folders and databases without any restrictions. All you will require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
