SSH, which is an abbreviation for Secure Shell, is a network protocol that's used to exchange protected data between a client and a web server, making it impossible for unauthorized parties to intercept any information. Many tech-savvy customers prefer SSH because of the higher level of security. The connection is created and the commands are sent via a command line. The available options depend on the type of Internet hosting service - on a shared server, for instance, files could be transferred or deleted, databases can be imported and exported, and archives can be created or unpacked. On a virtual or a dedicated server, the options are much more - the web server and the database server may be started/stopped/rebooted, server-side software may be set up and much more. These things aren't possible on a shared server, due to the fact that full root access is required and all the other clients on that server will be affected. Even though SSH is used mainly with UNIX-like OSs, there are SSH clients for other OSs too - Windows, Mac OS, and so on.

If the SSH access feature is enabled for your account, you will also be able to upload files through your favorite FTP client via an SFTP connection.

SSH Telnet in VPS Hosting

The virtual private server solutions which we offer include SSH access by default, not as an additional upgrade or a function which you need to activate. As soon as your new server is prepared, you shall be able to connect and start working on your content using the login details you have entered through the order procedure. A copy of the SSH credentials shall be sent to you via email as well. Since your VPS shall be isolated from the other ones on the physical hosting server, there aren't any limitations as to what you can or cannot do via SSH. You could download, set up and manage any piece of software that'll run on a Linux hosting server, reboot the whole server or just a particular software component, and work with files, folders and databases without restrictions. All you'll require for that is a console or an SSH client on your end.
